Default C&J advice and thanks

I posted these words back in September speaking of a 65k jerk (1st video), at the time was trying to get past shoulder pain during jerk:

One last thing-I can't split jerk so power jerk, squat jerk advice only. I am one of the people that Greg referred to a recent article that can't jerk, and Foreman wrote some time ago about being able to identify those that are better off not split jerking. I get the "it takes time," and "you can do whatever you put your mind to," "its all between your ears," and I even preach those to my son. That said, I can't split jerk. Too old, too stubborn, un-athletic, whatever I can't do it.

Made this lift last night:

Any advice appreciated. I noticed I lean a bit forward on dip and then the bar is out in front a little. Also, I have a couple specific questions. 1) I wait a real long time (20 seconds) between clean and jerk. Although not usually that long, I have been doing this lately and has been working for me. Thoughts on this please? And what is allowable in competition? 2) Does the lift look legit, i.e. no press out, specifically with the right arm as I have had that problem? I know the video angle not great to see right arm but let me know what you think.

Lastly, while this is not an real impressive lift, considering my squat and push press numbers, it felt great to have come so far with the split jerk after being convinced I was too old, too slow, and broke and it would never happen. So thanks to all the help from this forum and website as it has been my primary source of information and initially my only source. Thanks again.
