Re: Arm pistons


Sorry Gordon the only way I can show you is via facebook is this ok.perhaps I didn't describe it probley, you get two arms pistons one that goes on the outside that goes on the upper to the lower arm.then you have the other piston that goes on the other side but it's lower down connecting upper to the lower arm the piston that gets connected to the lower arm it wobbles unless I've put them on wrong.over the weekend I'll get a photo up or a little video and send it to you.

Re: Arm pistons


What kind of pin or screw do people use to secure the pistons to the arms? I don't think the ones I got came with anything other than the pistons.

Re: Arm pistons


Plus the way you have done it would stop it wobbling,like myn because the brass is so heavy it makes myn lean to either left or right
