12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

As has been mentioned, the look of the forum is different. As time permits, we may customize the look a bit.

I have created a new thread to discuss the new platform: viewtopic.php?t=4960

The new platform should be stable and fully functional. Please report any issues in the new thread.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me as we made the rather bumpy trip over to the new platform.

David,

You had it right the first time, both ends of the Torsilastic inner tube are splined. The half inch bolt merely holds the adjusting arm on the spline. Drilling a second hole for the bolt allows more rotation on the spline from the stock setup. Attached is a closeup picture of the spline courtesy of Sulastic.

Oh wow, I thought I was giving the wrong info. Thanks for correcting me. I'm getting more forgetful of things by the day :cry:
