You jam it inside the fork and its the new damper, the holes offer optimum oil flow.

JRA... one of the upper shock screws (LH) on my 2007 IH 7point must’ve worked loose and is no longer attached to the bike.

From memory it was something like an M6 (maybe M8) countersunk screw perhaps 15mm long.

Can anyone help me with the exact spec (or better yet tell me they've got one lying around that they'll send to me in the mail)?

I need to replace an oldtimey chainring. Arrrgh, will the chainrings on Shimano 600 stuff (6spd) still have the same diameter/bolt pattern as current chainrings?

just put on a new 10 speed cluster and chain put on and during the first ride the first 3 -4 cogs (19-23) are skipping over. Any clues to fix? Is it common as things bed in etc? :)

Hey all y'all!

Just wondering if anyone here knows what kind of bottom bracket to get for a set of approx. 1999 Hussefelt cranks? They're internal splined but I don't know if the Gigapipe BB is what I need.

Thanks guys and/or girls!
