1st thing to GO!!!!

NO ~ NO~ not that! [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] The mind ~ the mind!!!!
Here's the story~
I bought a real nice 87 JX tin top that it turns out came out of Florida, so hardely any rust ~ any way I've been working on it getting all the bugs out and finaly got it on the road yesterday. Well the lug nuts were all frozen on it and my son in law brought up his christmas presents~ a compresser and a nice asortment of air tools . We got most of them off but had only 2 good lug bolts left on the Ri. front. <font color="red"> </font color> SOOOOO
<font color="black"> </font color> I switched the hub assembely from my rag top to the tin top. As I was putting on the locking hub I couldn't get it to lock. Took it apart several times re installed it ect~ect~ect~ 2-3 hrs. later It finaly dawned on me ~ <font color="red"> </font color> MY RAG TOP DONOR VEHIVCAL IS LOCKED~ <font color="black"> </font color> MY TIN TOP ISN'T. it was working all along but the spider gears was allowing the axcle to turn without turning the driveshaft~~ [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] OH welll ~ What can I say Except [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Re: 1st thing to GO!!!!

I believe they are 12mm with 1.25 thread (fine thread). Be careful of people who try to sell you 1/2" in place of the 12 mm. They will work if you want to fuk up your threads.
