    WOW! Good job!

Fortunately at the end of the day it resulted only in the bottom of the frame on that corner being scuffed up.

    At this point Mr. Petty jumped in and heroically offered to lend me his cap, and one jack, several wrenches, and I was back in business. We also made sure to tighten down the other 3 bellcrank retention caps
    TMI has a bunch of the Brammo retention caps and related parts in their stockroom.

    Regarding tightening the other bolts, I suggest carefully removing the bolts and cleaning their threads as well as the inside threads they mate with. They may have been coated with an anti-seize compound. Once clean and dry, apply Loctite BLUE (NOT any other color!) to the far end of the threads, re-assemble, and torque appropriately.

    All is well, Jay got 2 bellcrank caps from TMI,I got my car is back together and I have a spare cap.
    So if anybody in the local area is stranded and needs a cap, I have a spare.
    Glad I could also help everyone out with their set-ups too.
    So get some camber in those cars and you'll knock another 2 seconds off your lap times.
    Cheers
