    I thought a "hack" was a side car, or a person who was a jury rigger. lol I guess I don't have anything to share.

    Use isopropyl alcohol to slide rubber parts into place. I've even used it to mount tires.

    While we're talking Valve adjusters, here's mine. Turned on my wood lathe in dogwood with a square drive screw in the end. IMG_20170319_230935.jpgIMG_20170319_230925.jpg

    Come on now, in motorcycle language a hack is a sidecar. It has been that way for about a hundred years.
    You are trying to steal the term and use it in the way that computer geeks use it.

    A term motorcyclists improperly stole from my families long line of golfers no doubt!

    I did a 27 year career as a Hack working in the NY Prison System. I am pretty good at hacking just about anything except a damn computer. I've had a couple of them I wanted to use a hack saw on though but opted for a sledge hammer on one.

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Before Motorcycles a hack was a taxi. Fastening a chair onto a motorcycle to carry a passenger made it natural to adopt the term to sidecars.
    I suspect that in golf the term was actually hacker, in reference to the way an unskilled player might swing a club.

    A "hacker" is a term that describes an individual golfers talents or lack thereof. A "hack" is a collective term to describe a large group of poor golfers. My original argument stands
