Good to hear! Man, we've seen some strange stuff on here. Anyway, glad to hear there's no end play. Minarellis are tough, bulletproof engines. I have two. Yours should last a long time, if the needle bearings aren't pitted from being stuck. Sounds like you maybe lucked out. The transmission takes 30 wt motor oil. Make sure it's non detergent. Read up on the Minarelli link in the wiki.
