How does the pin get secured so as not to slide out over time?
I know some of you guys want to do it all, but for me $50 to blast , epoxy paint, new springs, new bushings and pins, is a no brainer. Especially with my skill set!
i am learning more than I anticipated, but patience is not one of my virtues, but with getting a pig finished, more than I anticipatedI just put a small spot weld on one end of the pin then sanded it so it had a slight interference fit and tapped them in just like the factory pins.
I agree with Scraps, I didn’t build my pig to save money or time and I enjoy the challenges of these projects. I do understand that sometimes I step over dollars to pick up nickels with my logic but it’s a hobby so I don’t do it to be logical.
You'll be surprised at your skill set after you attempt to build a pig, strangely satisfying when you get to the end.
