I am finally getting to work on my 80, replacing the birfs.

Both axles have a groove in them from seal wear. I spoke with a fellow a while back that said that there were some sort of sleeves that were available to press(?) on to the axles to give a renewed bearing surface for the seal to ride on.

Anyone have any experience with this sort of thing. I really can't afford to spend the money for new axles.

Any other ideas out there?

Thanks, Dennis

Here is a pic of the worst one. I just went to the bearing shop and bought a couple of speedy sleeves, hopefully they will do the trick.
