Hey Mark, so I am a lazy slacker and had to plop my ample butt down in your comfy camp chair and somebody said - "oh look Mark gained weight and got uglier" and someone else said "no that can't be Mark, his coffee cup is sitting on the table"
so we took a picture :)

Hey Jim, a buddy of mine is interested in building another hybrid like your 357/272 monster so I'll likely tug your coat a bit on that. He's pretty good with the fabrication but the only 2-stroke engines he has any time on are reed engines so he'll have a bit of a learning curve getting piston porting figured out. Man that thing is cool.

I'll gladly help your buddy keep the build on the right track. He'll be fully committed on a few parts once he starts... there will be lots and lots of grinding on the cylinder. ;)
I used an ms361 muffler, but there may be a better fit out there. With my final round of work on it I decided to dump the stock intake to upgrade it to the 372 boot and rwj4 carb. Finding a location for the kill switch wasn't fun after that, lol.

Good to hear from you Nate! I hope all is going well.

Copy that! Thank you!

Yep, all's well, here's wishing the same for you.
