At the PMC swap meet MArlin said it would be 6 or so months. That was in August. So if all goes well that would make it sometime next year.

WTF why more bolts?

Because many people run a hysteer set up with a hydro assist and are breaking knuckles and studs...


So Marlin is making stronger knuckles with more studs for additional strenght with the steering arms......

not the" no", but the F-no CA
 
 
 
Is that steering arm on backwards? should it be facing away from the mounting tabs for the caliper? Are people breaking studs, arms or knuckles mostly? Anybody tried going up a size on thier studs, or grade 8? Those new knuckles are probably going to be very expensive.

:idea: Hey, you can weld on arms that aren't cast just fine (with some training and experiance). So any body tried welding a tab under the arm and then drilling/ tapping the original knuckle to bolt it across another plane? I think I am going to experiment on my old drum knuckles. I hope nobody needs them. Let me know before saturday. They are worth one tall cold domestic light frosty barely pop apiece to me. Other wise they are going in drill press.
BTW, 300 a pair is pretty good. especially if you could use them with some after market birfs, ifs calipers and cruiser disks to brew up a disk brake swap with no used parts. You only have to source out the spindle (?) and the hub that the rotor actually rides on. New bearings, seals, locking hubs ect and save your self the trouble of finding used parts altogether. :idea:

I think they are pretty sweet and I was thinkig about getting them. I think the site says you can run them on four stud arms in the mean time until they start selling the six stud knuckles.

It's getting close to March. Anyone heard anything new about these knuckles?

I heard a recent unconfirmed rumor that they will never hit production....it'll be worth a call to Marlin's shop to check on status and get something concrete.

too bad, I'd love a set....may just tweak my existing ones with the 5-stud mod in the meantime tho....
