Put flashing dynamo in the search box top right here and it will bring up a number of useful past postings. The other p...

Re: ball joint removal - drag link

Hi Brian.
When I followed the link mathias posted I clicked on the models next to the description title box. it says Major and Super Major there. I wonder if thats how the confusion comes around on that site as to what these parts fit :idea: .

Hi Just to add a little to what Brian said, Those ball joint parts that are shown in the link are for the first few models of Major like E27N up to the last power majors as they had drag links from the steering box down to the axle, that had components you could adjust for wear or take apart with sc...
