Default Re: How Do You Restore A Speed King

I'm thinking to replace the whole rocker assembly. Welding is a possible solution but I don't have the tools or the skills to do it, particularly such a delicate weld. Any thoughts lads?
I got a old one and never saw that before. JC is right about a new pin. To fill the keyhole part, smash a fishing weight down to a pin an tap it into the keyhole after the new pin is in, after a short time, it`ll form itself into a good fit and hold the new pin from using the same escape route.

The knuckle can be found quite easily but now you can take your time.
It`s a drum,.....Hit It !!
