Default Re: WOW ! I thought I was on my own...

Had another good day on it today, took the hardtail to my mate Belinders an got out the oxy propane kit to straighten the bent left side crash damage, it worked a treat and now looks good, there was also a bent chain adjuster an that was also put right, and we drilled out an tapped a couple of snapped bolts which hold on the rear center stand.
Tonight I've attached both sides of the frame back together an re-fitted the girder forks which still puzzle me as to how they come apart, I've only managed to take out one (yolk ?) bolt to grease and cant get the others out yet so tomorrow I'll chuck it on its side and concentrate my day soley on re-greasing the linkages, there coverd in things that look a bit like grease nipples but are half there size, but are not waisted like the ones I've seen but have short straight sides with a sprung brass ball on the top so I'm wondering if there was another type of grease / oil gun used in bygone times ?

Nice an straight
