... I did exactly the same thing when a dealer sold me the wrong part for my
'88 5kCSQA on a Friday and I was doing the M/C job on a weekend ... frankly
I don't think there is anything unsound about it at all ... I'm sure that's
what they did at the factory when they went from the firewall mounted M/C to
the one on the "subframe" ...
