Yup, they're really proud of them.
 
I made up My own last time. They had a locating tooth and both bolts were on the same side. Having a bolt on each side has always seemed like a maintenance headache to Me.

I've seen them some where before they're a good idea, but sorry I can't help Doug.

There's these. I've seen the ones you posted and actually have a better picture at work that I'll post on Tuesday but this link is an option.  Not as good an option in my opinion but still an option. 

Either way it sure will make getting those engines in easier huh  :)

Doug
      That's a good price if they are 4130.  Some of the ones out there right now are Jap knock offs.  Bad material.  I have a set from KarTec that I won't be using anytime soon.  Cost was $41.99 USA.  4130 1.5 for .065 wall tubing.  Can be turned down for about any size tube.  I'll part with them for $25.00 each. 

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

WTF?

but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
