    Let's see how many AKer's are in Iowa and how many want to have get togethers. Leben had one, yesterday (9-15) and it was a good time.

    I am in Carroll, IA.

    I’m in. I’d suggest doing something like the KC group is doing. Perhaps making this thread or another, a “ping” thread. Hopefully everyone that finds the thread over time can subscribe to and be notified whenever someone posts something. A good way to keep informed of local gatherings. Hope that makes sense.

    Well, we need all to peep in. It would be good to start a Iowa spring and fall get together.

    Going pretty good. I’m just trying to get the dc offset and bias thing figured out on my Sansui right now. Going over posts and looking at my circuit boards trying to figure out what’s what lol. I read over that long post on dc current bias and you and it measured 28mv on both sides. Any ideas lol

    I built a pts flow bench last winter and picked up all the stuff to do guides and valve jobs. Got tired of the crappy work around here. Nobody cares about 2 barrel circle track stuff around here to take the time and machine stuff to that last degree. And the flow bench really helped. Pick up 15cfm on the heads and 28 on the carb
