    I ended up tossing my huztl cases. I’m transferring everything over to a 371xp case that had some accoutrements already the OEM flywheel seems mighty close to jug after base gasket deleted. Nothing rubs. Any body got a safe measurement (2,3....10 business cards) of a safe gap. what kinda cylinder growth I’ll get once hot? Should I grind down the cylinder a frog hair? I don’t want this thing blowing to pieces.

    I just filed it down a bit. Think it’ll be fine.

    I think they just loosened n I had used Stihl bolts that were 5mm shorter. Oops. Squish was .0325 before I swapped cases n cranks. Now it’s. .033. Just did compression check.
