We'll cover this one more time... Tow Dollies are designed to tow a vehicle loaded facing forward. Period. The tow dolly manufacturers, U-Haul, eTrailer.com, and others all point this out. bnc

Most muffler shops in my area that are 'quality' shops can install an aftermarket cat, even with thin washcoat, that will last their 24 month / 24k mile warranty period. I was the recent 'recipient' of a cat hack-attack,on a Honda Element (top 10 candidate for a cat-ectomy...) and local shop replaced cat with aftermarket for $300 installed with 24/24 warranty - and I'm

Flares from Volkswagen Rabbit (Mk 1), or ~1995 Nissan Stanza are an option... And the Rabbit flares are inexpensive - better aftermarket following than some other car options. =Rabbit&vehicle=Volkswagen&vehicle=1981 bryan

MB 616/617 diesels only need one battery. If you're bent on installing a diesel into the back of a Corvair, use the VW 1.9TD/TDi engine, and use a VW Type 2 Bus or VW Type 1 Gearbox. Adapters & flywheels are readily available, the VW TD will provide plenty of power, and parts are cheap. Use a slip-tube axle assembly concept like Datsun used on the 240Z... bryan

... the Triumph throttle bore diameters are comparable in size to the Weber triples. (46IDA3C) Bore size (depending on year model of bike used & whether used on 885 Triple or 955/1050 Triple) were anywhere from 41mm to 46mm bore, with the 955i & 1050I variants running 46mm bores. The Weber triple was typically found in 46mm bore, but 40mm & 50mm variants could be had. The Trium
