When I "dry fitted" the rag joint for 4 hours, I couldnt get it to align with all 9 holes.
The spokes/hub was in the way.
I temporarily "threw in the towel", by getting the assistance from a local FL Vendor to:
(still had to ship, @ 7 hours away). Awesome vendor - Thanks again Jeff.
a. drill out the center sprocket of a 44t and 50t
b. regrease the hub
c. install rag jount sprocket 44t
d. shape the brake arm.
I shipped last friday, was recd, worked on and shipped back yesterday, should get back wed, thurs the latest for the July 4th weekend.
