Community: Missing Shop Manuals

Hello friends and family of K-W & Area Bug Club.

Its with concern that I send this message along.

One of our members – Ernie Abel, has had a number of shop manuals borrowed without his permission from his shop in Wiarton Ontario.

Five-hundred dollars is offered by Ernie for information leading to the return of the shop documentation.

If anyone has questions or information,  please directly contact Ernie.  Thanks!

The stars typically corrode in place, so we remove them, clean them up in the wire wheel. We typically apply grease or anti-seize compound to ensure they remain free (for a while at least). The next step is to adjust the brakes so they just slightly drag on the drums. Take it for a test drive, feels great doesn’t it!
