I have a 72 com pact jr and the tires
were hitting the inside of the fenders when loaded with supplies. I decided that an axle
flip was the best coars of action. Instead of just doing the flip, I decided if an axle
flip was a good salution, then adding 1 and 3/4 inch spacer block on toipo of that would be even better. WRONG!!! For anyone thinking of this it was a horib;e idea. I found that it raised the center of gravity way to mutch. I thought it would flip over every time I hit a bump or turn a corner. So today it was back to thbe garage to undo what I thoughbt I had just fixed.
One more note for anyone wanting to do thie axle
flip on a compact Jr. The axle under it is not a tube!!! It is solid steel. wow that 2 inch thick steel will kill a drill bit. The reason for the drilling is to drill a reliefe hole for the bottome of the spring pack bolt to align the axle. Just a few helpfull hint I hope. Doing thigs the hard way and doing them over to fixe the problame is my specialty.
