More miscellaneous cleaning and sub-assembly.
Cleaned and polished the brake pedal and the clamp that goes on the opposite end of the brake shaft. Cleaned the rubber cups and washers that go on the shaft as well. Slipped everything together.
Cleaned the starter button and installed it into the bracket.
Cleaned all of the pieces to the steering damper assembly. Sprayed the knob with S100 Engine Brightener to make it black again. Replaced the steering damper with a new one.
Working on the swingarm next.
New swingarm pivot bearings and seals.
New carrier bearing...
...boot and clamp.
All finished and ready to be installed.
Cleaned the "mudguards". Haven't polished the stainless any, not sure I'll need to.
These knobs aren't original, but do the job and are 1/3rd the cost of the o.e. type reproductions.
Axles. The front one cleaned up very well, the rear one - not so much.
It really needs to be rechromed.
The washers look good, the nuts will be replaced with stainless steel ones.
Disassembled the rear shocks. The dampers themselves are in good condition - no leaks and nice damping. The retainers and adjusters will clean up well, the springs? I'm soaking them in EvapoRust to see if that makes any difference.
I've had a pair of NOS springs for years and hoped that maybe they would fit. Close but no cigar.
Not sure what the springs fit.
