fitting bushes to the stanchions
this is one of the new bushes for the fork leg.......compared to the old one it seems good quality....notice there is no split in the new one
The new stanchions look the part .......look how rusted the old ones were
Tap the bush to the stanchion (its a tight fit) make sure you use a rubber hammer
Use a punch to crimp the bush to the stanchion .......make sure all the holes on the bush match the ones on the stanchion then punch it with firm sharp blows.....notice the stanchion is in a vice and protected by wood so you don't damage the stanchion
