    So I have a question....

    I was told that there is only one place left that sells the Detroit for the 101 rear end.

    On jegs, they have this...
    http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...p;pgGrp=search

    I'm not sure if that's the same one, but it's labeled for the "sailsbury 101 rear"

    Anyone know if that's a compatible match? Or if it's something else entirely

    Well if you can still order it, it is the right part and they quote the correct spline count.

    Okay... So apparently there the little plastic connector on the carb linkage that connects the 2 carbs decided to dry Rot and snap off. Looking it up, it seems like the linkage including the connectors are all metal. The one I'm looking at is just a threaded plastic connected that snapps on to the ball on the lever arm of the carb. I can't seem to find them online though. It seems like it may be a popular carburetor connector though... Can anyone corroborate? Maybe I'll just find one elsewhere

    Mike,
    You will need to try and find the entire link 610336. This has the two plastic joints and the threaded metal rod between. Oddly they don't seem that easy to find these days.

    Fortunately the metal ball part of the joint simply screws on to the carb. You can removed. I believe you can get the metal version of the joint used on series trucks (531324 socket and 535168 ball) which allows you to disconnect the linkage easily for tuning. The alternate I used on my old 88 is to buy a set of metal throttle lever joints for a lawn mower from ACE. You might have to search for one of the larger Ace hardwares as the fastener section is not always the same. They cost about $1 a piece when i did that many moons ago.

    Got some seats in! Much more legroom now. They're not perfect, but they're better than the mice-eaten ones I had in there. And they even match!

    Also, for $free.99 I couldn't argue with the pricetag.

    Thanks to greenmeanie for suggesting the Pegasus Parts "bean cans". They're much better quality than I was expecting of them and hopefully I'll be able to get them in this weekend!

    Tires mounted! Look great, and not nearly as heavy to turn as I thought they'd be.

    Chunky.

    They look good. I'm interested to hear a report on how they drive.
