Good info, Howard! According to that linked site, Roy's 2000 W/C T5 not only has too large of a pilot tip (.668 vs .590), BUT.....it's also about 7/16 too long (11/16 minus 1/4). Soooo.......rather than guessing whether or not one could simply machine the tip down and hack 7/16 off the end, I would suggest talking to one of the techies at "Pro-Force" to find out whazzup!   <shrug>

I agree, Ray. Stan owns  Pro-Force, and like Bo, Shannon, etc. is more than willing to share his knowledge!
Before I decided to go with the 2004R, Stan spoke with me for about 1/2 hour regarding the SVO T-5.
