No vacation but I do have some customers in Guyana.

<span style=”font-size: medium;”><span style=”color: #000000;”><span style=”font-family: Calibri;”>I think it might be helpful to explain for the low information Honda wrenches that I am referring <span style=”mso-spacerun: yes;”> </span>to the albero, (crankshaft in Italian) when I state that I re-build <span style=”mso-spacerun: yes;”> </span>the crankshaft for customers. This may seem confusing to the low information Honda wrenches because (I believe) that the Honda crankshaft is a <i style=”mso-bidi-font-style: normal;”>stamping</i> made from old car doors, bumpers, washing machines etc . </span></span></span>

<span style=”font-size: medium;”><span style=”color: #000000;”><span style=”font-family: Calibri;”>Unlike the Honda, the KZ crankshaft is an assembly made up from precision HSS details that are assembled in factory tooling. The design allows for replacement of the connecting rod bearing, pin and thrust washers when required.</span></span></span>

When I state that I rebuild crankshafts for the KZ customer, I mean that I replace the rod, bearing, pin and washers when required by customer.</span></span></span></p>
