I can't find the thread where we where chatting about the tranny. Anyways, I thought maybe I was lucky and the fork wasn't broken, but no such luck
I did figure out with a little help, a pair of vice grips, hammer and an extra pair of hands, how to move the rods and not have the poppet balls fly all over the place
Have the fork out and going to try having it welded. A buddy says he did this to his Dad's Cub about 2 years ago and it is doing well. Might end up having to do this again, but oh well - need the practice I guess.
Other thing is, I think the other fork is broken too.. I know that the set screw is stripped for sure. Sure hope the threads in the other end are not stripped -- that would mean a complete tranny tear-down right
Got me fingers crossed.
