Re: WTF Happened to My Wraps?
In your last post, with the three pictures, I'd almost guess that there could be a leak in the very front where the thread meets up to the guide (picture two) left half of the guide. Just a guess, mind you. I'd suggest taking off the epoxy and wraps from this guide, making sure when you are wrapping it that it is totally dry (color preserver?), and very carefully re-epozy-ing the wrap, taking care to begin and end smoothly and completely, especially where the thread meets the metal.
Don't look back ... we ain't goin' that way!
