    To cute! Don’t forget your tie down straps! πŸ™‚ Wouldn’t want to lose that awesome buggy.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    I was hoping Antonio would see them pics…Β  It’s pretty cute… Corporate says it’s not for sale!Β  😎

    We simply welded two tabs to my pit bike carrier, and bolted on the stock mounts..  Now I can have both!! Pats idea right there! 😎 wink..

    Cool how it just follows you around.. I have to remember the “Swing” off the back of my bus now… 😎  Can’t see it or feel it..

    and the cover!!!  😎  Keep the frost and weather off my shit!  AND the trailer.. 😎

    Merry Christmas!

    Happy Holidays
    I put some miles on my bus for BBB prep after I rebuilt the steering box, put in a new clutch, and resurfaced the flywheel. I had the gland nut come loose at 253 lbs/ft (going off of the idiots book) dry.

    I’m curious to hear what do you guys torque gland nuts to on 1600s?

    Red Lock-tite. Β Torque to spec if it’s a stock gland nut.

    I either use anti-seize or Lock-tite on most all hardware, depending on application.

    Hopefully that flywheel didn’t cause too much damage.

    Red Lock-tite. .

     

    Thanks Mike. No damage luckily.

    I did end up using lock-tite the second time around to be safe.

    Fingers cross this does the trick.

    Yep, red loc-tite on the glad nut. I know it’s Β controversial, but I’ve never had one come loose, and a good 1/2” impact gun will break it free when you want it to come apart. I also like to use an impact to install the glad nut.🀫

    8 dowel crank/flywheel seems to have less problems with the glad but coming loose too.

    This is all great info. Thanks Franz. I’m rocking the 4 dowel but good to know for future reference.

    Thanks again for the feedback,

    Johnny
