    We'll need to have access to a later model FSM, I could scan a few pages for you if you'd like. You'll have to wait until thursday evening though.

    You can get manuals on line in pdf format at birfield.com

    btw Is the knuckle centering tool available for loan?? :)
    I'm doing a disk swap with mini truck stuff into a '67 axle housing so the shims I have won't work and I'll need to work out the new ones.
