    Cleaned up spindles over the weekend. Found one worn bushing in drivers side upper that needed replaced.275C60CD-3A93-4BEA-AC04-300AE8BFDE3F

    Franz cleaned up the kingpin just a tad as well.CCB989CB-8B55-428C-99CC-E041FD487FB7

    Pressed spindles back together this morning. FC3C27A9-D89A-487D-A899-CCA1EFC2A9E58FA64B63-B8DC-460A-9E7F-0C59686A3CBA

    As usual lower shock bushing were stuck and required a bit of love to get them off.  4805CA7F-200B-4761-BD47-33E9BF2C55C01A4AC390-1073-4B2A-9DF7-D2EE6BB2451B33AE84CE-390F-43E6-A7A1-2A6217D9376D

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

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    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.

    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…. 😎  😎
