If you use model airplane hot fuel proof dope on a clean gage, you just let it dry overnight and it will be done.

Another vote for Rootlieb. There are not many good used hoods here. A friend has looked at several,none worth bringing home.

I did not get it from Randy. I know he does good work. I simply did not like it as well as the original box.

Re: Tie Rod & Drag Link Cups: Steel v. Teflon v. Bronze

I have had teflon seats in my Tudor for 12 years and 27K miles. The balls need to be in good shape for any cups. I never have had to adjust mine and they steer easier.
