Re: overdrive

If you found a plug at the front of the unit, why not pump oil into the OD with a pump. Also if it shares the tranny oil as mentioned above, why is there so little oil in it to begin with? Jack

Re: Mystery Bolts

Re: head lights??

Re: New or Used Parts

To save some money, you can find rolling frames available with all of the mechanical components there for the brakes. Get cast iron drums and you are good to go. Jack
