Also, go to the hardware store and get some slef locking nuts, otherwise all the nuts/bolts are gunna come loose sooner or later and you'll have to re do it.
Thanks buddy; i believe you; this is the hardest part; your right about those cheesy looking bolts too; i replaced them with american standard and i got em about a quarter inch longer; hope the excess bolt doesn't make any diff. i don't think i could have stood the aggravation of the shorter ones. I think i have it loose enough to work with.
as far as truing, can't i just sort of eyeball the sprocket hole with the hub material it sets on?
