    Long story short. One of the lugs, where you install spindles, is snapped off my swing arm. I was going to replace the whole swing arm (anyone with Norm Dickson contact info?) but it doesn't look like that will happen.
    Anyone know where I can get a lug welded on? Today?
    How about in time for the track day Monday?

    I'd suggest Ryan (sandman). His work is good. Now hopefully you can get it done in time.

    It's fixed fellas, better than new. (Those factory welds were junk!)

    Thanks for the suggestions and the offers. I have been using various other stands for a year but it's fixed now and I'm going back to the lift type. Less chance of snapping the lugs off than spindles.
