ya,what he said.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
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."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

I started on the buggy the other day.  New left front spindle made, parts at powder coat, changing all the suspension bolts (some had some decent wear on them) and all new heim joints. One thing I learned was that I need to tighten all the suspension bolts before every trip.  My bad.


well i will agree, that is the best pre trip check  ;) ;D ;D but dare i ask how and when you learned this??  :nw  beathorse.gif~c200  rofl

Lucky I was checking and changing all hardware out.  But the ones that were loose, of course had the worst wear on them.  I always make sure I don't have "threads in bearing".  When the suspension is loaded up, they didn't seem loose, but as soon as it's jacked up, it was obvious.  The rear trailing arms pivots and very front on the A arms were the worse. 

Live and learn, just like the "tow ball" video.  Wow.  Never have heard of that, but makes common sense.

99% of all buggies do though. People just don't know or care to do it right.  I'm with you though. All mine are correct. Takes some doing but definitely worth it.

Yeah I bought longer bolt and cut excess threads as to keep the smooth shank on the heims.

I booked my spot a month or 2 back.  All way down on left. 

Got a couple small things to wrap up.
You can keep your CHANGE, I'd like to keep my DOLLAR.
