Making this statement again: Drilling and pinning is the preferred method and has been done by manufacturers for decades because it is the best way to insure that the FSB will not move. I found the best way to do this was to pass a bar through both of the little end bushes. The same bar in the little end bushes held the shaft while I undid the bolt. The right hand shaft also became free to remove and out it came. I then had to hit the right hand shaft with a soft faced hammer to knock the left hand shaft out of the centre main bearing. Removing the centre magnet wheel is not too difficult either, although you do need to stop the crank shaft turning while you undo the centre bolt. Once fitted, the wheel was put back on again and this time I could add two more chrome parts, the front fork cover plates.
On my last blog, you will recall that I had finally managed to fit the front wheel. My front brake pads need to be changed. My brake fluid seems really dirty (dark brown). I need to know how to tell difference in disc brake mounts on my mountian bike. After studying the front brake backplate, I realised that there was an “A” plate that bolts to it, which is connected to the stay that stops the back plate rotating when you apply the brake. Well, all that’s left to do now is put the dummy tank back on again and do the same trick. You’ve now learned a valuable lesson on using the right tool for the job. Replacing them does not look like an easy job as it will mean knocking the pins (big end journals) out in order to gain access to the bearings. In order to make sure that they were in exactly the right place and at the right angle, it was necessary to offer the dummy tank into place. Tighten the side bracket fixing bolts just tight enough to enable me to turn them, offer the tank in place. Each bracket has two tongues that protrude from the back.
The two tongues pass through the large hole in the frame and into to matching slots cut in some round mounting washers that fit on the inside of the frame. I decided to fit the two HT coils, which fit in a really difficult position, inside the front of the frame. How do you change the front disk pads on a car.? Since you change out the cartridges completely when the faucet starts to leak, the cartridge splines may not be as likely to strip. Warnings signs that the splines in your faucet are wearing out include the handle turning loosely or wobbling on the faucet, even though the screw that holds the handle to the faucet is tightened all the way. You must cut off the flow of water to the faucet once the splines strip out. When you select a screwdriver bit, it must fit perfectly in the slot not only in the narrow dimension, but in the wide dimension. Point a hair dryer at it for a couple minutes, then use a normal screwdriver.
The smaller shaft of an ordinary screwdriver should allow you proper alignment of the tip with the screw and give you better grip. Take the first stripped screw hole and inset a toothpick. If it’s not flush just make sure that you use some kind of quick drying temporary gasket and seal along the outer edge so that the JB weld doesn’t get everywhere, but rather just stays in the hole . It was at this point that I decided that this was stupid and I needed to make an easy and secure way to get the coils on and off, as I was sure that sooner or later I would have to remove them again. This is much easier said than done as it knocks out to the right, but you can’t get a drift on it from the left. This stops it from moving and makes it a lot easier to deal with.
