Some of my neighbors^^^ smoked 'dick-a-rettes'. But I lived in the S.F. Bay Area...
So what, be polite.
Remember when you didn't know everything?
Thats pretty basic knowledge, good luck with your post count Old School.
2006 is 7 years btw
A most excellent brake related pun, I love it.
Or did you really mean to type "caliber" instead?
Around here it's hard to tell if it is sophisticated humor or a misspelled word.
Lol best thread title ever.
Please use proper HAMB etiquette and call people by their full name, Richard Noggin.
Just to throw a serious spin on this (lest I become a dick) I just checked Scarebird's web sight and 145.00 will buy you a pair of disc brake brackets that use '90s Lincoln discs and Celeberty calipers. In other word about 250.00 and your back on the road with a brake set up that might just keep you from getting killed in todays traffic...
But then isn't there the cost of a new MC with a booster and all the extra work?
Plus I really wanted this to be a 100% stocker
... and here I thought when I opened up this thread the OP was gonna say he worked at DMV .....
BTW did the OP ever say if he was trying to stiff his boss out of a free brake job or not? If that was the case the employee is lucky he didn't get tossed also! LOL
How about taking my wife to work?
First laugh all day! Thanks man

I don't know why you would want a booster, but yes I would go to a new master as well, although you could probably pull the residual check out of the stocker and use externals for this deal too. I myself wouldn't drive around a city of any size these days in a dead stock car that size with drum brakes. But if it makes you feel any better it says that it will clear stock wheels.
" My name is still in the system...because yes I was going to pay for it. "
That means that (even though you're an EE) you're a 'paying customer'. The shop lost your parts-now they have to replace them. Tell your manager "we lost a customers drums and need to comp. them a new replacement pair".
FWIW, I work with some idiots too. There's a lot of that going around!
So are you drunk or did you mean drums? Or maybe you need drums, bearings and seals and you are drunk also. This thread is a hoot other than the missing brakes of course.
I got a set of drums that came of my 54 Plymouth Wagon, should be the same.
Btw. I had Discount tire loose a wheel and trying to give me back some 80's mag wheel...
Would that be digital or dial?
I had a shop turn my drums until they looked goo. But then I couldn't use them. charged me anyway.
If your drums looked like goo, I wouldn't use them, either.
