Re: Important

OT, but tool related:
I bought a set of metric Spline Sockets at HF on a whim. So far I have only tried them on the front bearing bolts. The splines sit inside the grooves on the reverse torx nicely and the socket slides on and off without effort.

thorttle stop has already been discussed. It's a manufactured cart, dual disc brakes on the axle. He got a pretty smoking deal for $150. Briggs 11 horse I/C on the back. I figure about another $150 in parts to make it driveable again. missing a brake caliper, needs pads, random bolts, belt.

last time I needed one of those I had to go find mine. Bought, used once, sitting in the toolbox for 5+ years.

I use the smaller ones all the time it seams like. When we were selling XJs like hot cakes it seamed like I was replacing the bellhousing bolts on every other one due to being lloose, sounds like low end motor noise.

Wow that sounds like a nice place Mac. From talking with our realtor/friend right now is a good time to buy a new house. She has been extremely busy here lately with selling houses.
