SIP Migmate 130 turbo Question. Anyone have one please? by
Thanks James, I have one more problem I was wondering if you could help with? The feed motor seems to be jerking in what I think is medium setting from what you said. All switches down. Any help would be great.

A Post picture needed! by
I'm glad you found what you needed. I know what you are talking about the not posting your e-mail...... I don't either. I thought you might benefit from pics of my bus with the windshield and dash removed, it's basically gutted for rust repair under the window seal. What a coincidence so...

Bug master cylinder: Residual Pressure Valves? by
Well, the brakes went soft on the 'ol 69 bug, and a puddle appeared under the master cylinder, so it was time for a new one. Went to the FLAPS and got a new German FTE/FAG M/C. It looked quite similar to the original (yes, it was the 35 year old original, complete with a blob of body...

Front torsion bar removal by
Not sure it is a good idea removing an entire front torsion bar. I have a beck spyder and removed the four "smaller bars" from the upper torsion housing because of the weight of the spyder. I did find that I had to use the adjustment nuts to reset the height i wanted. I also would be interested...

Look if you want too get angry with someone that's fine. All I wanted was some help from a fellow air-cooled enthusiast not an argument about whether it is safe to give out personal information in open news groups.
