Re: Adding Guages

Someone tried to steal my moto-meter, and broke the neck on my nearly new radiator. $500 bucks shot. I have a new radiator, and a gauge now... I sure miss my moto-meter though.

I don't mind my linkage brakes, now that I overhauled everything, and put on equalizing wedges, and cast iron drums. Once ya get everything all adjusted it works quite well.

Re: Grease Fittings

It could be that the sleve / bushing in there is rotated around blocking the passage. I think I have one that is doing that. Sometimes I can get grease into it, sometimes not.
