I tried calling Bar

I tried calling Bart Lalonde at Aero Sport Power on Monday, but he was sick. I did talk to Sue, his very capable office manager, and she talked to Bart on Tuesday. There were a couple of rounds of back and forth, and we finally sorted out all the details on Wednesday.

We discussed several options, but settled on them sending me a first run overhauled cylinder. They need to paint it and assemble all the pieces (valves, rocker arms, etc) then get it to me, along with rings, gaskets, O-rings, etc. I could have sent my cylinder back and they would have removed various pieces to install on the new cylinder, which would have reduced the price somewhat. But, that would take time, and I can get assistance from Ron M., a local AME, if I get this done before he heads to Florida. I'm going to be on the road a fair bit over the next three weeks, and Ron disappears at the end of the month, so I don't have much time to spare. If I miss him I'll have to track down an AME from another airport, which will take time and money. I tried and failed to get an AME to come out to help me with the helicoil - I don't want to have to track one down to help with a cylinder replacement.
