Hi guys hope everyone is ok, I started fitting the brake overhaul kit and the top spring seems to foul the spacer near the pin! i have followed the fitting manual and thats how it tell me. is there a way of making hit not foul or is that how it is?

hey knappster yes it is looking good, i have the welding rods i have 3mm steel and the new parts to replace the broken. hopefully my mate is up for welding as he is doing it. Im just grinding to bare metal and cutting the 1 underrail out as the tin worm has eaten it inside out

Ha cheers I'll remember next time blue springs haha, the blighter got it own back today. Thought go to garage fit new brake and change the bearings on the rear. Went to move the old bulkhead out the way and bang think i pulled a muscle in my rib. First time I've done that and by God does it take your breathe away from ya.

Any way any tips on getting the new rear hub racers in? At the moment I am using the old racer to tap it in but I don't want to hit it too hard. Do I just need to keep doing it this way? I don't have a press btw

I know all about pulled muscles and worn out bones.
Just keep tapping it with the old race or a suitably sized socket. Make sure it's going in square.
