"key" or "key way"? Is it true some use no key at all? Have you cut the key? How much? Could be a problem with tappers, crank or flywheel?

When you lap, it helps to know the fit you're going for. You want it to grab more on the big part of the taper. You can check this by making ink lines on the shaft with a sharpy then spin the fly wheel a little to see where the ink rubs off.

Well believe it or not there is a 2 liter of Dr. Pepper in my traction additive for “racing on non track surfaces”. It gets sticky!

Contrary to soda pop mythology, Dr Pepper is not made of prune juice, nor does it have any part prune juice in it. It is made of a blend of fruit extracts. But the blend of flavors results in a uniqueness that makes many people swear that Diet Dr Pepper is the most undiety tasting soft drink in existence.
