Hell, I'm probably gonna sell the ammo for $150 to recoup my money.

What type of ammo and how many rounds are you going to sell?

I know what it's like living on a fixed income. Will you be able to keep enough ammo for future use? It's sometimes harder to find and reacquire ammo for better prices than what you just got rid of.

I'm retired and fixed income too, so I get you wanting to sell ammo to recoup some of the cost. but, might want to keep what you have, 1000 rounds is kind of what you should have (unless you don't intend to shoot it), it goes fast. see it on sale for 18-19 cents a round delivered, that should give you idea of value.

You should, but it might be difficult to remove in the first place. Drive it out right to left, not that it matters. PAX

Don't  think it will pose much of an issue unless the previous owner did something stupid.

The pin that came with the brake isn't original...it is longer for the brake. The original was discarded in lieu of it.

You may want to hunt down an original if the long one can't be recovered...you do need both pins.  It's a hoot shortening the lil buggers when you need to...be ready to cuss...have precision vise grips, and don't forget eye protection.  chuckles1

In a pinch a roll pin can be subbed temporarily if you wanna send the original pin for the brake along with it.

I have replaced a FSB a couple times, both pins can be crucial to maintaining straightness. I will say that you having the likely unfettered with original FSB will make it easier to fix, and less likely to cause issues...but you should put A pin in there...regardless. :)

Think I might have a lead on an original pin.
