Almost ready

Got Kieran's new tires and mounted the rears for the Test-n-Tune on Sunday.

I got my motor mounted tonight, with new fuel lines.  I was able to mount the motor almost 2 inches farther back than it was last year, so that should really help with my weight distribution, in addition to removing a few more links from the chain.  Finally I drained the gear oil and found the missing piece of the piston (damn good thing, too!).  The last thing I need is to refill the oil and reattach the clutch to the clutch handle.  I should be ready to get it started, probably Wednesday.

Other minor issues to complete: change the rear sprocket on Kieran's kart, tighten my fairing, change my MyChron batteries, install my heel-stops, swap my steering wheel.  But all of those can wait until after I get the motor running.
