I'm getting about 12-13PSI on a mechanical guage at 1.7 BAR reading
on the dash.

I've been lurking lately, been real busy with other stuff.

Also:  There were two or three people who had emailed me about getting
a spring, I've lost your addresses.  My back bedroom system had a disk
turn into a chain saw, and lost my mailbox file that contained several
things-to-do notes.  Please send me another email.

I will be out of town for the next week, so I may be slow to 
respond.  Daytona bike week, ya know  :-)
