Re: Best tires for the money?

I would not recommend Michelin harmony tires ,,I put a set on last spring 195-70-14 and they are coming off this spring,,they are scary hydroplaning in the rain on the highway

Re: 4a rebuild for the Rusty Frog

the only thing I did was machined about 3 pounds off the flywheel,,cant tell you if it made a big difference because I did not run the 4a before I installed it

Re: Steering Joint for 83!

these u-joints will fit,cap size is 16mm and the measurement for the in side locks is 1.05" or26.6mm,i rebuild drive shafts and steering shafts and use 20-30 of the u-joint a year,on some of the yokes you may have to squeeze them in a little bit to get the inside measurement
