    If you don't have a longer breaker bar then use a piece of pipe over your ratchet handle (if the ratchet strips it was crap anyway, this won't bother any decent 3/8" drive ratchets). I have a wilde...

    I'd forgotten about Boyer (and Pazon) because far more common Harley were under discussion. Those are specifically designed not to require suppression wires (and the tiny few remaining vintage...

    You could certainly spend the money to have stainless steel chrome plated.

    I'm not that OCD but it is only money and would be more durable than chroming trash carbon steel.

    I buy custom kits for V8 auto engines and any different plug boots required then make what I want. A bit more fiddling at first but I like having more leads for less money plus spares on hand.

    Automotive fuel injection hose (I use Gates Barricade most of the time) works fine for gasoline, pure methanol, blends and oil. Ebay prices for cut lengths usually beat the auto store. When in doubt,...

    I use an oil can to pre-oil the top end. A plastic squirt bottle works nicely too.

    Remove rocker cover, cram tip in hose, pump until you see oil.

    You could just Ebay them for more than you paid though that wouldn't cover the shaving. Lots of builders don't even know how to get forks shaved.
