Default Re: How Do You Restore A Speed King

Oh, and I don’t worry about being really careful where I direct the heat. The pot metal expands faster the the steel bearing caps and around the hoop clamp.
The chrome cross piece also expands faster than the roll pins - those pins are very hard steel.
FWIW

Curing the squeak take it to a whole different level. Iíve found a solution in using hard nylon bearings. But itís labor intensive. Itís also worth it.
If youíd like to solve the damned infernal infamous squeak, send a pm - I can do it for you.
