Next question...

What do do with all this extra travel!!! winking smiley

I think I make it used up in both bump and droop right? Extend the overall length of the pin to pin by 1/2 the extra travel... I get a bit more droop, I get a bit more bump? Never broken a cv... but don't want to start now.

Something like this mk1/2 escort housing might be a good starting point, but I'm betting that you might need to modify the knuckle to make it fit.
There's a 14.5" version, and inserts available as well on the site.

Thanks Robert, but I can probably chuck a hunk in the lathe and make that up for less then shipping... winking smiley However in some ways the pic answered my question... I guess the short version of my rambling above was... "what's typical wall thickness on an inverted billy outer tube?". and from there it looks like at least 3mm (looks thicker than the 45/40mm - 2.5mm wall tubes I have, that I could not fit a bush in... but similar to the .120 wall DOM... so... roll cage tubes? Why not. winking smiley

Probably easiest to just schedule an hour or two, pick up the damn phone and see if I can catch JVL between kitty feedings and cig breaks. winking smiley
