    My R75/6 Should it sound like....

    A sewing machine?

    To some this will sound like a really dumb question, but this is my first Airhead....wanna be sure she is healthy.

    Thanks in advance!

    Rule of thumb for airheads:

    Sewing machine sound - all's right with the world
    No sewing machine sound - valve lash problem
