...that's great news! Funds sent, thanks Darin!

My TH has gained a little weight, and this is exactly what it needed. Can't wait to try it out!

Will there be any differences between the original kits and this one?

The only real difference is these are cut out of 1/4" plate and then decked to the correct thickness. The first versions were cut straight out of .160" sheet. The difference is the bellcrank arms are now just a hair thinner than the thickness of the bushing which makes it alittle easier to install without binding. The first ones were basically the same thickness as the bushing.

I sent out pm's to everyone that was on the waiting list with PayPal payment info. Thank you all for being so patient. If you weren't on that list, PM me and I'll get payment info sent right over to you.

Sounds like version 2 was worth the wait

I don't really see a reason to, there is no difference in performance. Like I said the bellcrank arms are just a hair thinner. The first run if you tightened the 4mm screws too much the arms would bind and you needed to back the nut off slightly til they moved freely. These new arms don't have that issue, unless you crank down on that nut.
