a whizzer? what is that?  sounds like a roller coaster or a Fred Savage movie;)

No, i did clean up the block with a metal straight edge, just scraping radially along the circumference (sp?) of where the old seal was.  I didn't get it spotless smooth clean but i did clear away alot of rust/old gummed up seal.  Is that enough, or should i put some fine grade (higher grit) sandpaper on it?

Thanks again,
George Siambis
