flgr

i just purchased a flgr and when i try to slide the bushing over it it wont go. the gr is just a bit to long like maybe 48 thousands of an inch. hahahaha just a joke, but its just to show that its only that much that is keeping it from being seated, is there anything i can do to the gr,besides taking it out? any help would be very much appreciated.

Punctuation is your friend. I stopped reading after the first sentence.

Grind or file the length of the FLGR until the bushing will turn past it. Simple.

Before you take any material off the front check it for fit in the rear. With the slide off see if it seats nice and flush against the frame horns and the pocket. Sometimes the round part of the guide rod head is a little big in diameter and won't let it seat like it's supposed to.

Try not to get an attitude. Punctuation helps readers understand what you are trying to say.

if you dont punctuate and use no correct capitalization no one can understand it gets very hard to read it does not take much time or effort to use the periods and commas it sure makes it nice when you do if you dont it gets annoying i cant figure out where to stop and pause see what i mean

Sounds like someone needs to become familiar with the Bushing Wrench now that they've switched to a full length guide rod.

Lighten up Francis

Could we take it a little easier on folks around here please? I just left another thread where some of our members were jumping all over another newer person like hungry fleas on a dog.

Yes, punctuation is important. But, when someone has only three posts under their belt, it can turn a person real sour when we start being a bunch of smart asses right out of the gate.

Please consider lightening up a bit.

Now fire away at me too, I can handle it

I know about the rules Brother, you can put the badge away. And I agree with you about the punctuation and grammar. All I am asking for is a bit more civility and patience when it comes to newer folks. If that isn't your style, I certainly cannot do more than ask.

Thanks for hearing me & have a good weekend.

I understand, but it would seem that even if you are new you should take the time to make it look like you are willing to spend a few extra seconds to contribute well though out questions. Plus, read the forums rule first.

As was said, try a bushing wrench, the metal ones are worth the extra cost.

Punctuation aside

Are we talking 2 piece or one piece?

If you haven't do so, take the time to read ALL the rules, even the one on the proper use of grammar.
