Front Suspension Details

Post by beltguy »

As some of you know, we lost a few posts in all the work being done to update our forum software. One of the most significant loses was a great post by our residing expert Walter.

I have captured the post on one of the clones I have created and am posting it here as a Word document. I hope to recreate the thread in a better format in the near future.

Jim, thanks for saving the post. There was an addition to it with two pictures that does not show, I hope Mason got to see it before it disappeared. The pictures don't have the ability to be clicked on to zoom in, I hope it all gets restored at some point. I don't envy your wrestling with this updating to the forum, but I appreciate all of your efforts. This forum remains the most valuable asset to Eagle owners, even the ones in Russia!

I'm not sure about being a "residing expert", but I appreciate the thought. If Orva Norris were still alive, he would truly be one, and Clifford Allen is still one, but he is not active here like he used to be. I am just a 25 year Eagle owner with several feet of manuals.

Walter, if you will send me the pictures (full scale) I will rebuild the post (address in signature).

Really sorry this happened. What a wonderful :shock: experience this upgrade has been.

None of the older posts got lost. This thread got lost during the reload of the legacy software since it was created while the crap was hitting the fan.

I would really like to rebuild this thread at some point. I have it on one of the clones I created, but can't find a way to transfer. However rebuild would not be all that difficult if I get the photos.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.
