My son shot down the design I proposed last night. He wants a teardrop, not a mini canned-ham. Is it bad that I'm letting a 7yo have the final say on design elements of this project? So after much...

Open it up and see what you have. If it only jumped 1-2 teeth you may be okay. If it's way out of time, you probably have bent valves. The t.b. job itself is not too hard, but it's important that...
