Everything I've read here about it would indicate that you are right in the gray area also. Pullerguy will chime in I'm sure. I got lucky not once, but twice in that my 2 800 were built late summer of 07.
Once you get the pinion nut done, you might look into moving the voltage regulator up front where it will stay cool. That's my current project as I've lost 2 so far. I do think they were both original, so that's not really too bad.
But congrats on the new machine! For as much as I read on here about how bad the 800 are, I sure love mine.
