Thanks for the info from everyone that replied.

I'll have to look at cannibalizing one of the spare engines we have in 
the family stash though most of the 65-69 engines we saved are something 
special that I'd rather not break up (mostly 140s and a pristine 180). 
Maybe the one in there isn't too damaged as well...TBD.

I consider the 110 a mule till I can get something built that would be 
more fun, but with my work situation, that will be a while. Little spare 
time for fun stuff these days.
