May be to nice for me --

ggl205 Front wheels with tire and Moon style disc. I did talk with Chico ( spelling ?) at Speedweek and he is OK with me calling these Moon style discs.
Thanks Chico, Terry

Sparky's shortening a rearend for Ms Liberty. Thought was to skin id of existing axle tubes inline with carrier bearing bores. Problem is existing tubes are approximately .080" off center. Not enough material to bore on center. We decided to skin id of tubes on their location parallel to bearing bores. Then turn OD of new tubes with a .002" shrink fit. Then "adjust" new axle tubes to get outer axle bearings in the right place.  Hard to believe factory machining is this far off.
