It looks to be coated (anodized) aluminum. They were very light when I had them out last week end.

I plan to give it one last try. Glad it all worked out for you.

BTW any idea what the FD pivot pin is made out of ?

Thanks

I'll be glad to send it on to you if you still need it. I can look up the price when I get home. It was under $100 if I remember right.

Re: Swingarm

+1 on the cold chisel method..........I use that often getting bolts out of the Chevy bell housings that strip out. It's a life saver for sure...........

Swingarm

I may be in need of a swingarm for my LT. Yesterday while in the process of swapping my FD the outside pivot pin cracked and the 12mm allen spun and stripped the pin. The pin will not move.If any members have a swingarm for sale please let me know.

I have checked all the bone yards without luck.
Thanks
