It has a sleeve on both ends, the bottom is small and doesn't come past the rubber in the shock, but the top one has a sleeve that stick a good 3/8-1/2" out either side. The part that is baffling me is that I personally took the shock off of the block yesterday, and then today after getting the engine onto the different cradle, the shock won't go back into its mount on the block. When I went to put it in, the sleeve was at least 1/4" too wide to fit into the slot. I will have to wait until morning to post pictures, as it is too dark and WAY too cold for my creaky joints to be in the driveway messing with anything else tonight
grind it, the sleeve if it is really to long and you just don't have them reversed, or just at the wrong angle to fit or the other mount was wider. if we are both talking about the same thing. this shock came off the other block right? if it came off this block then it could just be twisted, the shock tube.
Technology is great when it works,
and one big pain in the ass when it doesn't
Detroit iron rules all the rest are just toys.
