    That would be awesome, I don’t get to drive fully sorted out buses very often.  My passion feels reignited lately.   Spent a fair amount of time durdling in the garage.  Cleaned a few areas, check out the OG rocker!20190619_21521620190619_21515520190619_145658

    Horn was so clean inside! Shocked me.

    I guess we’re doing this.  Stupid spacer behind bearing is always in there so good!  Any tricks??

    Apply some heat with a torch usually frees up rusty junk. If no torch start treating with penetrating oil couple times a day. Gentle taps with on or those hammers ya got may also help.

    We will build it if it comes.

    I use a small sharp chisel to separate that spacer from the spindle surface.

    That works. Do you know somebody with a lathe to clean those up?

    If only it was this easy to slam it.  I don’t know anyone with a lathe but I will look, also need to press these apart and see if I can flip them??
