Your right, I was surprised! ~$15-$20 for a 12"x18"x3" hardware box does seem pretty reasonable... Even with the more pricey racks, still less than I saw old beat-up ones go for at a Roller auction.



On the flange hardware side, www.RockyMountainATV.com has decent quality 6mm and 8mm flange bolts and kits at very reasonable prices.

Also have a VAG-COM for those looking to tweak their VW/AUDI's... Some pretty cool stuff.

I also have a Yoshimura box for tweaking Suzuki fuel injection mapping (Vstrom surging, in particular)

If anyone needs to use them

I have the KTM cam chain tool and flywheel puller for the RFS engines

Send me a PM if you ever need it. (It's well traveled)

Plumbers? Tub drain help...

The cross-bar dealie in the tub drain flange busted off before I moved in. Obviously the stick-a-wrench-in-and-turn method won't work to remove the old flange.

Pic:


Anyone have a tool for extracting these?
Something like this:

or this:


Already have a new flange/drain, just need to get the old one out first.

Timing Light

Anybody in Boulder have a timing light I can borrow? I thought O'Reilly auto would have a loaner but not for this tool. I'm just having too much fun working on this truck!

I have at least two that haven't seen the light of day for several years... Dwell meter as well. You are welcome to borrow them for an extended time, but they are in Denver. Near DU.

I'm sure you'll get some closer offers, but if not, let me know.

...and how about some pictures of this truck you are working on??

Timing

Thanks for the offer, but I ended up scoring a loaner in the ole hood, never would have guessed. As for pictures, I'll give you a preview of the Spacejunk.





So, I bought this truck off craigslist for six hundred big ones. Oops.... when I first saw it I thought, well this is a real winner alright, because the PO had crashed it into a light pole or something, the interior is rather meh, the cd player is sitting on the floorboards along with the drivers sun shade, as well as belts dude pulled off for efficiency reasons(ac and smog pump belts.) Oh, and the smog pump belt helped me fail emissions asap, thanks guy! The plus side was it came with a spare tailgate and it pulled pretty strong driving it around.

About the picture, the hood came unlatched while driving down the highway, I know, I know, I'm lucky no one got hurt. Thankfully no one was in front of me or behind me when I heard the dreadful lurch of the latch that released the blinding obstruction into my view. Glad that exciting moment is behind me. The best part of that episode was when the homeless guy begging for money at KingSoopers told me, "Ya know you got motorcycle tie downs holding down your hood?" Thanks, guy.

Currently I am almost finished installing a timing belt, though it don't want to run yet, hence the timing light. The thermostat bolt stripped the threads out of the block so I need to drill and tap that and then reinstall the radiator, straighten out the fender and hood, get the hood to latch properly, and also install a windshield washer reservoir and pump, along with a headlight and turn signal. Thanks to Louisville's finest for reminding that my truck is junk and needs a headlight, I'm glad I got a warning for a busted headlight when my mom was riding in the truck with me on one of her infrequent visits to CO, she wasn't a big fan of the truck when I picked her up at the airport with it, and after Johnny's disapproval, well she didn't like it much more.

On the bright side, everyone keeps telling me it's a great shadetree mechanics vehicle. Now if only I could pretend to be a mechanic.

M12x1.0 tap

Anyone have an M12x1.0 tap? I haven't been able to find the 1.0 pitch locally. AAA Metric said they have some on order. PM if I can borrow one from you for a few minutes to clean up a couple threads on something that's portable.

Harbor Freight has this set, but damned if I can figure out its contents. I stopped by the Arvada store and this item wasn't on the shelf (on sale)

The HF kit I have contains a 12x1.5 and a 12x1.75 and was all of $8 quite a few years ago.

Thanks for checking, Mountain. I have one on the way from Amazon.

Edit: I had a visit with Neil @ Hitchcock Industries today on unrelated business. He took pity on me, pulled out an internal thread file and fixed me up.

BikeSDP screwed with this post 08-24-2012 at 03:41 PM Reason: good outcome, great local business

Assuming you don't mean strut springs
