Have you measured up the big end yet? I measured some Eagle's a while ago and the small ends where way out as was the wheight difference..

75ftlbs????? why so much? Steel Rods we torque to 45-50ftlbs. Whose rods are you using ?

If you torqued 3/8" rod bolts to 75ftlbs, you'd better be looking for some replacements, because now they're stretched to a point where they're worthless.....

thanks larry...

I figured something was off on the torque when the bearings weren't getting me the specs.. lol I always double check everything, oddly enough sometimes you allready know the problem.. but can't figure it out.. lol , couple hours sleep a night, for the last few weeks has been rough. lol, trying to get to many things out lead to small miss-calculations on rod bolt sizes.. lol. that's why i locked up shop and left, after trying 3 times, i only used one set of bolts.. easy to get new ones.. i'll tackle this tomorow ;)

thanx guys.
