Re: 29 Roadster won't idle all the way down

I use a fulcrum spring similar to this. I didn't like the way a coil spring pulls back on the throttle shaft.

Re: Steering Wobble Troubleshooting

It appears that someone installed a steering damper at some time to "cure" the front end wobble?? Nothing wrong with a steering damper, just don't install it to hide a problem.

Re: 29 Roadster won't idle all the way down

Re: Loosen / tighten individual cylinder head nuts?

7/16" crows foot? Should be closer to 11/16". Remember if using a crows foot, use it 90 to the torque wrench. Using it straight changes the torque a certain amount.
