Oh Joy resto 12/28/09

Went up to Oh Joy again today with the Grandsons. i managed to pull the chainplate partner after some judicious pounding on the bolts to get them out.



You can see the size of the bolts that hold it in place. What a pain to get out...

The clamp came out, once I had the boys loosen it, with a hammer and pry bar.



Nasty ain't it. to think my upper chainplate was attached to this...



The rest of it looks fairly good.

Aft lower



Upper



Forward lower.



The boys clownin'



and taking a break.



Now I can cut the sawn clamp and laminate it without worrying about bending stresses. This was the piece I was digging for these last four months.

Judging by that bolt-turned-horseshoe, finesse ain't in the house! Getting closer dude. Keep bangin'!

No, no finesse there. Just a 3 Lb sledge and a crescent wrench after I took the air hammer to it so it would start moving. No work for a lightweight when pulling 50 year old bolts....

I'm enjoying it. They're pretty hardy too. It was 31F in the shop today.

Its great to have good and willing helpers.

Whenever my wife says our re-build job is bigger than we planned I show her your pictures.

I had to use a 15-# sledge to push out the 1-1/2 inch bronze pin axle for my swing CB. I used a 1-1/4 inch aluminum drift pin. The bronze was bent. It didn't really want to cooperate.

None of this stuff wants to cooperate.... All of it takes judicious use of the hammer and even then it sometimes just won't move. I've broken half a dozen supposedly hardened punches on the various bolts I've had to remove so far.
