Arthur,

Thanks, can always count on you.

As far as the seller of the drum goes you have to admire someone who thinks big.

i was trying to buy the BAR parts kit with approved form 1 circa 1986 from the same seller of this Drum. Very rude and condescending. He told me he does not like GB customers and all they want are deals. Some people survive in spite of themselves.

Well, he is who he is.  Same kind of treatment happens in his store.  Hey somebody has to take over for J. Curtis Earl.
