    I could Ker... but.... I do not have the right tools to do it myself :bang: I did reply to you also in my original post.... I have not had any feedback from my European Brothers yet... so.... Curtis will be my Savior.... I will have to bite the bullet and spend some more bucks.

    I love my Big Dog!!!!!!!!!! :spank: Yes I do! :cheers:

    I just want to give a shout out to Bowhunter. The dog is torque monster since the cam install. No way I could have done it without you. Thanks brother.

    I have been mostly off the forum due to my wife having a very involved spinal fusion surgery 3 weeks ago. She had correction of Spondylolisthesis of L5, ruptured disc removal on L5, trimming of disc on L4, synovial cyst removal on L4, and fusion of L4-S2. Its been a hard row to hoe around here for both her(patient) and me(care giver).

    On a brighter side, many thanks for all the positive feedback you guys are throwing my way. Glad to be a help to you guys.

    Franco, I had faith in ya!
