Re: knuckle felts
Here's the danged deal (almost) --
1. You should be able to find them at auto parts stores. If not, try one of the Sammy parts sites (Suzuki John, Hawk and others).
2. From '88 Shop Manual: There is a two piece joint seat held down by 8 bolts. Remove the bolts, then cut the old seal and take it off. Cut the replacement seal at one place and put it where the old one was placing the cut on the top half 30 degrees off the match face of the oil seal retainer. Apply Suzuki super grease (Suzuki Super Grease H 99000-25120, any of you guys know what the substitute for this is?) to the inside of the oil seal. Apply sealing compound ("Cemedine" 366E 99000-31090 again, substitute stuff?) to the mating face of the two oil seal retainers and tighten down the 8 bolts to 6-8 ft/lbs.
3. you don't have to do much, maybe take the wheel off to give you more light and working room.
Hope this helps!
