Re: Anyone running Shock Absorbers from Snyder's?

I just bought a set from Brattons, getting ready to install. Were the original shocks painted? If so, painted black?

Thanks !

Hi folks,

Thanks for your help. Jumper cables didn't work, but running the negative and positive leads directly to the starter worked! Thanks very much for your help.

Re: Starter hang up with modern bendix?

Thanks Marshall. I checked and the bevel is facing the back. Wondering if the starter itself isn't strong enough to turn the engine.

Anyone have a good way to check the torque generated by the...

Re: Replacement shifting forks?

Thanks all. I've tried each of the suppliers listed and nobody has new forks in stock. I'll likely try Mantiques Resto and report back. Thanks again!
