Re: Shackle bushing reamer use

It looks to me like the reamer for doing that kind of job needs a pilot ground on the starting end so it will follow the center line of the hole. Maybe I'm just not good enough at holding a reamer...

Re: Clutch chatter

I've got some badly worn rear spring shackles that I've not replaced yet. That could be the problem more than the motor mounts. Thanks for all the help guys.

Re: What's your favorite year and why?

I like the 30's the best. I like the long swopping front fenders on the 30 and 31's but I still like the 30's the best. I have 5 at the present and 3 are 30 models.
