Well, my first kid loves bicycles already, so there’s at least some chance. And I hope they hate cars, so they don’t want to drive mine.

 

We’ll be on Ricki Lake tomorrow to see who the real dad is.

I need to get a couple sets of those kingpins from mike... 

What are the bolts and sleeves for?


They are nifty tools that he made to press out the old bushings.

Yeah, email Mike. These need to be honed by a machine shop after the new bushings get pressed in.

 

Ah shit, can any machine shop do that?  I guess I could ask my local engine guy if he could do it.

My machine shop used the same machine used to hone the small end of the engine connecting rod....

So your engine guy should have this ability.....

The new bushing will crush when pressed in. They also need to be lined up to the grease port. An adjustable reamer is faster and more accurate than a hone.

I think this is what M Klotz uses. A hone is going to wobble all over and you could end up with a tapered bore.

 

Perhaps you're not familiar with line honing? This would be the proper way to do it.

Almost have my speaker pods ready to go on the kick panels. Mounting them about mid-way up with the tweeters turned upwards such that I still have room to put my foot on the dead pedal. Should be a great improvement. Then I’ll be sending my door cards to the upholstery place to match my bench.
