Was this the dark colored one on Craigslist last week?

Sounded like a good deal. I would have gotten it if I could.

Couple of things to be thinking about, put a REAL subie fuel pump on that thing. That generic NAPA one is crap. GD will tell ya to change the carb but it could wait. The right front wheel bearings are another thing to watch. I tightened the hub nut and it quit the noise, but they should be replaced when you can...GD said he would do it for cheap and quick too..

It is a solid rig tho man and so glad it is in good hands.....just not so happy it is not in my hands but, eh life goes on....:-\

Ah yes - I've seen that Brat. It's a nice little unit.

Bring it by sometime and we can have a look at things. Send me a PM, etc :)
