Did you want to send a letter?

Maybe along with the tranny parts if you haven't already.

You lost me on the letter? you mean to allow using a Pop rivet?

 

I am going to stay away from Tranny Parts, i am politically correct tonight.

Yes, no worries, neither rivets or the parts are performance enhancements, just getting away from IIDSYCDIYC.

After a year of driving on rough western tracks like it was a V8 super car........fine. But I am going back to finding uprights that give us the number we are looking for and we can run in both orgs.

I just received an email from Richard with a pic of the bushing. I will forward to the Whiteline engineer. He is still sleeping in California. When I know something I will post.

 

As a followup, I have not seen this in any of the bushings we have installed.

 

The terminology is a bit confusing. There are basicly 2 manufacturers. These are the Whiteline bushings, and they are black in color. The other bransd is ISC who makes them in "white" delrin. I only sell the Whiteline and have no knowledge on the ISC. Advanced has sold several hundred sets of these bushings and this is the first issue that I am aware of.

 

Until I know more

Dave

 

Has the engineer emerged from his sleep to enlighten us ??

It's lunch time here in Cali

Wakey wakey
