Hi Ben,

Being involved in the current dist metal gear fab/gp project, I am extreemly
interested in your metal gear experiences, and those of any one else.

Is it correct that you are saying you have tried three new metal geared
distributors and all have exhibited the gear rattle?

Have you replaced your timing chain, or inspected it for tightness?

Any others have negative experiences with metal gears?  Please let me know.
