Fulcrum pin pin

Postby richocki » Sun Sep 07, 2014 12:00 am

No I do not repeat myself ;)
I am rebuilding the front suspension on my Mk II Sprite. I am ready to install the small pin into the swivel pin that keeps
the fulcrum pin from turning. It looks like it is going to be a tight fit. Is there a trick to driving the pin in? I am afraid
it won't go all the way and they what would I do? Has anyone installed on of these pins lately?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I replaced my wishbones and the fulcrums a couple of summers ago. Had the same problem with the locking pin. One went in all the way and the other lacked an 1/8 in. I checked several times to make sure everything was lined up without any obstruction and all was OK. Seems like the new pins may need a some slight filing to fit completely.

Thank you hoggie for the reply...
I can not even start to get the pin in the hole. It seems that it should go in at least a 16th of an inch maybe even an
8th of an inch before you have to hammer it home. There isn't much taper to that pin. I'm afraid to start beating on it
because if it isn't straight them I'm in a world of dodo. I guess a little filing is in order but that is hard steel.

Is this the fulcrum pin your referring to? If so, how much of the thread comes through on the pin.
