Thank you for the info on the harmonic balancer. This is the first I've heard of that issue.

Above you mentioned your power peaked at 5500-5600, making your perfect shift point 6200-6300. How did you come to this conclusion?

I'm not disputing you, just trying to understand how you figured that was the optimal shift point.
