Cleaned up spindles over the weekend. Found one worn bushing in drivers side upper that needed replaced.
Franz cleaned up the kingpin just a tad as well.
Pressed spindles back together this morning.
As usual lower shock bushing were stuck and required a bit of love to get them off.
Ready for a fresh coat of shiny black.
We will build it if it comes.FranzParticipantJune 24, 2019 at 1:06 pmPost count: 5403
Knocking it out Pat!
I ordered parts this morning. They will be here on Thursday. New bearings, shoes, shocks, damper, tie rods, and drag link.Pat KParticipantJune 25, 2019 at 6:39 amPost count: 2933

How much meat are on these drums? I always thought they were manufactured right at minimum tolerances, and couldn’t be turned.

I was always told they were fat and could be turned beyond the minimums. “but just for our cars, customers buy new drums.”
Wish I had a lathe to turn drums here.Pat KParticipantJune 25, 2019 at 10:38 amPost count: 2933

Ben there are loads of turns that can be done to drums… so long as it’s a clean up.. 😎 We just skim them clean and straight so the brakes work the way they should! 😎 You’d know if the adjusters were just too far out… but I doubt that would happen with new shoes..
We got a trike in to work on today….. 😎 The older I get…. the cooler those are looking… I think I will take Corporate out on the town when we get it running… Give it a try…. 😎 😎
