    Fender Skirt Parting Ways

    Hi, all the pins are there and go into the holes, lock lever pushes up and locks in over the tab, and it is locking in at other end of lever at top of wheel opening. So to me it all seems fine, the lever must be gradually lifting its way up maybe through vibration when driving ?? Gavin.

    Budd disc brake parts needed

    Yes they list as a LH and RH, the only difference is where the bleeder screw goes, all you do is order 2 of same side of what stock they have, take out bleeder and small brass feral that sits in hole where brake line goes in and switch around, it worked for me, calipers are identical both sides.
