My rear cylinders have a hole in the base so they can bolt in, like you see in the picturs here. Does anyone sell cylinders like this pre-drilled or will I have to drill them myself?

Also, is there a specificname for this kind of setup?

Thanks.

ditch that 80's technology and upgrade to some powerballs.
every cylinder I've ever seen comes with a threaded hole in the end, usually fine thread 1/2" I think.

yeah you can pick up some generic powerballs on ebay for cheap. . but to answer your question, yes, you'd have to drill em yourself, or buy the thread in drilled extensions.

just be carefull where you drill them, depending on your cylinder make, the casing collar might have to sit on something instead of the cylinder piston bottoming out in the case when dumped.

So how would the powerball be mounted? I would have to cut off the existing mount. Does a powerball bolt on? Weld?

I could keep everything else the same? The coils and all that?
