Default Re: How Do You Restore A Speed King

Go to hardware store or online and purchase a new " roll pin" Take a small punch and drive the old one out, then new one in.

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?
Ta.
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.

Thanx Jeff, I learned that watching an old guy fix a dent near the window on the rib of my pick-up after a street sign hit it.
