Re: The passing of DewCat Tea-Bob

R.I.P. DewCat Tea-Bob :cry: Very sad, I didnt realize Bob was that bad off, then again most people from his generation aren't exactly "complainers" He was a throwback to an early and better era, when people still talked to each other, and had a greater sense of pride, and personal responsi...

Re: Scrambler fender donor ideas?

If you still need one I have 3 spares.... two are trimmed in the back (very common thing to find on these) the other one is pretty rough. The rough one i could let go very cheap, and also send pictures and measurements of a factory un-modified fender with it... Im planning on putting all 3 on ebay s...

Re: Crank balancing

This makes me still think about using one of those (heavy) Wiseco 900ss pistons, I still have not bought one, but the 450 im building will be for street use ...

A Borgo oem replacement oversize piston should be ok too... Just curious as to what these cranks where balanced with at the factory, and an OEM...

Re: Parts Manual Needed-1966 Mark 3

One other thing worth mentioning... If your serial # is earlier than 00351 than you have a 65' and the carb is almost the same except it uses a 100 cut slide, and a 122 main jet (and it could also be a SS129A possibly) These where titled with the wrong year all the time in case you didn't already kn...
