Local with a B3?

Anyone local with a B3? Thats good and running? I picked up a cheapo used B3 and I cannot get the rear end to "fit" together properly... the cvds are too short in my opinion. Of course since this is used I am not positive everything on this is as it should be.. though I have the manual and it all seems to be right.. so if that right... what am I doing wrong?

I know most have moved on.. but if you have a good working B3.. let me know cause I would love to look at its cvd shimming etc..

This was a problem on the B3 the CVD's are to short. When you have your tie-rods in the rear on the longest setting they can fall out. I played around last year with the shims. The best way to shim them is one on the CVD side thinest size. On the rim side two thin one thick, put the thick in the middle of the two thins. If I was going to race the B3 again I would pick up some B4 CVD's and play with the spacing. You could get a little wider stance and you wouldn't have to worry about them falling out!
