Re: Need help on literature

I have all three, as a matter of fact I have 2 "red" books, one dirty for the garage and one for the house. I don't think I've opened the other two (blue, green) since I bought them.

Re: $32.99 !

If the buyer will not do his home work then kudos to the seller. I have sold 1/2 dozen Andrews red books on Amazon for 99.00 even with my own comment how they are available for less then 40.00.

Re: "Ford" lever shocks - Need Help

Those are a different design from the originals. Same with the ones sold by Snyders and Brattons, those will not be able to be rebuilt, only "originals" and Snipe shocks are rebuildable .
