    aight... my zero rates came in while I was away... so now I want to put them on... Once it stops raining...
    anyhow... Reading the directions... I only have a question..
    To move the axle forward 1"... I need to remove my center pin from my leafs...
    The instructions say to shorten the center pin to about 1" in length... which pin am I shortening.. the one that I am pulling out?
    so then I am going to take the 3/8 bolt and go through the zero rate to the hole I want for offset... and then put that into the pin hole??

    sorry for the stupid questions.. I have been trying to do all my own stuff now instead of paying someone else... Computer geek that wrenches.... :grin:

    anyone have easier instructions for me to use???
    Thanks
    Jeff

    never reuse a centerpin. and most of the time thay need to be cut out.
