Great product


I just did my right TB and can't believe how quiet it is now. Instructions were spot on, nice job on the photos. The new shaft and bushings are very tight!

Using the copper wire to remove the busihings worked great. I had to use heat on the aluminum cap side as even with the copper wire tap I couldn't get it to work. Heating the TB helped a lot in getting it out. Also, my aluminum cap was bonded to the TB and it took heat to get it to come loose as well.

Everything worked great, so thanks for the great instructions. Oh yeah, this kit was $100 less than the company kit that made the TB's. Can't believe it would be any better.

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD -40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape
