Some say they could get spring back in just putting

that method did not work. Mine were...

Not in jersey, 93 premium is 60 cents higher over 87. But still "only" $3.34 a gallon and that is for Shell or Sunoco, the only two I use.

I have what looks like stock mufflers (with no cracks :D)
and they are super quiet. I don't remember my moms 60
being loud at all, and I spent many years growing up in
the back of that thing.

Now that you mention it, that is the style I have on my 430.
Wonder why Rob doesn't?

I'd also like to see front view to see how bracket bolts up and how it fits with original PS brackets.

See if he can get a pic from a forward view of that AC bracket.
So far it looks like it may be difficult to get to PS fill and dipstick.

Maybe I have the wrong "dipstick" on my cap, but it barely registers at the "cold" spot when hot and what seems like overfull.
