    Has anyone ever come across this situation? One side of this 81A-7222 tower was drilled and tapped and not the other. Is this a factory defect and how would you get the detention ball and spring in and out?

    I have come across this before, just remove the 2-3 rod first then the R-1 rod, ball and spring will come out, to assemble you will need to depress the ball and spring while pushing the rod through.

    Joblot was selling repro 3 inch forks for a few years before they went out of business. Not sure if anybody kept it going but van pelt would know.Original ones are still pretty easy to find at swap meets etc.sometimes you find them in the single detent shift towers which can be bought cheap.
