I need a front end alignment bad. Just noticed the inside of my tires are wearing quickly. Guess I didn't get the toe in right. I need to find that part number for the adjustable upper bushings (if they still make them) to do the camber and caster. Though this one isn't bad in that department.

Between aircraft dramas, I managed to grind my M&H fuel pin to a flat ramp. What a difference. No delay and a smooth power band through acceleration.

I had a 4" Diamond Eye on my 91. The problem is shipping from the North East corner of the lower 48 is $365, the exhaust system is $280ish. The only place in town that can bend 4" wants $1000 to make me one. Most other shops can bend 3".

Was thinking of transferring to Oregon until I found out they changed their laws this year. Some of my "toys" and "literature" would make me an instant criminal there. The cost of living is just going ballistic here and wages are stagnant. The state is threatening an income and sales tax to cover their overspending. If they do that, I'd be forced to move.

Come to Washington, we have 1,000,000,000,000 laws and 1,000,000,000,001 loopholes.

See if Summit Racing does free shipping? That's how I got mine, anything over a certain value has (or had) free shipping. I had to have new clamps welded with hangers on both sides at each end of the muffler. The single sided hanger clamps were too much load for the rubber hangers and the exhaust system ended up on the rear axle a few times in 6 months. I told the guy at Diamond Eye exactly what was needed to support the weight when I first installed it and it took them 6 months to react, and even then they sent bits that needed welding. There aren't a lot of options out there that I found, the D.Eye system was about it. No one bent 4" pipe where I am (SW Ohio) either.
