Ah...I see. It's in the "Members Only" area. That must be it. I'm not sure what the prerequisite is to access that area, other than being a registered member.

Well, I realized I had some cashola sitting in my PayPal account and became a supporting member.

Here's the e-mail I just sent the seller...
Quote:
****,

After recieving the pump kit I ordered for the Twister body I purchased from you, I went to install it. I quickly found out that the threads on the front block bolt were made crooked. There is no crossthreading or other damage to them, they were simply made crooked. So I can't help but conclude you knowingly sold me a lemon of a body without informing me of such. Frankly that is a ludicrous way to do business. I'll be awaiting your reply.


Thanks,
-Chris

Have you tried to thread a block screw into the body? The pump kit may have been misthreaded.

If the body is misthreaded there ARE ways to fix it. You could have a solid plug made that threads into the front and then glued and drilles and re-threaded.

I have, and I've tried the pump kit guide rod on a different '99 body and it's fine. Thanks for the info.

Damn that sucks! All that gorgeous mill work just to dick up the threading.

When you tighten the guide up the rod doesnt straighten?

Are you certain the threads are aligned that way? If the existing threads were straight and someone just 'messed em up' a bit, you could try re-tapping the threads, cleaning them out a bit. Then, when you go to seat the pump rod in there, put a decent seal on the flange so that air doesn't leak... Just a suggestion, that's such a beautiful body!

I agree with spin doctor. It can be retapped straight,but you really need to becarful doing it. It's not that far off. I would suggest using a gun tap (3 fluted). That's a nice body too. Worst comes to worst,Helicoil or keensert will fix it.

I agree with spindoctor. I could just be the first few threads that may be buggered up. I know when the body is mini'ed you have to retapp the threads. I would suggest using a gun tap to clean up the threads. If that is as far as you rod is going in then something isn't cut correct or just needs a little cleaning.Also Keensert and helicoil are great alternatives.
