WHAT IS NEEDED TO REBUILD KINGPIN

after reading the other post on the death wobble.i have decide to rebuild before the melt (still trin to get there). when drivin down the road it would jump/move to l/r very slight worse after putting in the 1.6 (maybe because of more power)it only started this after the felts start to leak i put on a z-bar last night i got off a parts zuk it did a lil better this mornning.

Re: WHAT IS NEEDED TO REBUILD KINGPIN

Your normal tool box should do it with of couse some grease, I would say a good part of one day and you should be done.. Make sure you mark your king pins so you put them back exactly theway you take them out and the shims must go back in the same spots..How are your wheel bearings, good time to check and replace or repack... Hope this gives you an idea...

Re: WHAT IS NEEDED TO REBUILD KINGPIN

Some other than common hand tools would be:

seal driver or equivalent....
seal puller......
long drift....for kingpin race removal......
torque wrench with 2" socket.....
"snap ring" type pliers, but with the paddles (Craftsman)

Don't forget a tube of silicone.....

It should take around 2 hours per side...maybe a bit longer if you've never done it before...

Re: WHAT IS NEEDED TO REBUILD KINGPIN

If the bells are pitted too badly, you may want to use a trick some motorcyleists use on pitted forks. JB Weld the pitts (after cleaning of course), and sand smooth. It works great on the M/C forks and should work great on the bells. No more leaking seals!

Outlaw, Why? Because it can!

Re: WHAT IS NEEDED TO REBUILD KINGPIN

Thanks for the post on the king pin kit from Randy's Ring and Pinion. Mine came in yesterday. Their service was outstanding. The package showed up 20 hours after I ordered it.

Re: WHAT IS NEEDED TO REBUILD KINGPIN

i completed my front end rebuild with no problem last weekend.
i ordered the kit on tuesday and got it on fri 3-day select shipping.
randys <a target="_blank" href=http://www.ring-pinion.com>www.ring-pinion.com</a> does have a good kit BUT if you need any front bearings you will have to buy seperate pep boys 22.90 each with the price of the kit and if you replace all 4 its the same price as the complete kit from TT it comes to your door but i only replaced 2 sets not all 4
i found out something the someone before me did not do a good bearing job both nuts were finger tight and had marks of maybe a screwdiver to tightin it. i made my own socket out of scrap stuff i works good and i torqued it to 55lbs on the outer nut
