Anyone who can help me press King Pins apart in Midlands?

Post by SplitMind » Sat Jan 12, 2019 10:49 am

I've not been on for a while, so firstly - Happy New Year to all the good folks here!

I bought a set of flipped spindles a while back and they've been waiting for me to get around to fit them (okay, it was about 3 years ago! :roll: ). The nitrile O-rings are cracking, so would like to replace them before fitting to my bus as they won't last long as they are.

Is there anyone around Shropshire, Worcester or nearby Midlands locations with a suitable press and experience who could help me separate them, fit new O'rings and press 'em back together? I've not done this job before, so don't know how difficult it is or how much pressure is required....

Spindles are obviously off the bus, clean and no brakes attached so hopefully a nice easy drive-by job.......? :?:

Thanks in advance.
