So...a hunting ratio meshes the same teeth on every rotation, and a semi-hunting ratio requires multiple rotations before the same teeth meet again?

I get the concept, but that is the most nonsensical terminology I've heard in a long time. Seems completely backwards, even to make a little sense.

So....crap. Went to install the Trac-Lok last night and turns out they need longer bolts. With washers. I also need carrier bearings, but those are in stock at most autop parts stores.

The hard part is finding these bolts/ washers. I need them tonight. Can't use hardware from tractor supply- it needs to be the exact right part. Anyone know any speed shops in the Baltimore area where I could pick up these bolts/ washers?

I'll try. Worst case I'll have to get them overnighted from someplace.

Fastenal actually had the exact perfect bolts. $17 for a pack of 25. Now we have 15 spares.

Anyone need a set of 10 Trac-Lok compatible ring gear bolts? Only $15!!
