Thanks for your replies gentlemen. I am going to journey to the country this afternoon and look at that part. I want these guys to know that I'm fairly mechanical minded and not someone they can jack around. They are quoting between $450-500, not unreasonable if it cross threaded, since it needs a new balancer and pins. Does this seem about right? I want to see that bolt. For what this is costing, I may have it gold plated and use on my desk.
Thanks for further ideas!
