Robin Madge Posted March 27, 2006 Share Posted March 27, 2006 For the second occasion in 10 months I have had the problem of a rivited lever breaking through its bearing hole. Now I know that I use my G/D a lot but if you thnk I'm going to pit up with with this every 120 years your mistaken! Seriously though, in each case the lever arm has worn through the bottom of the hole because of the constant upward pressure from the springs. The bearing is a plain bearing with the rivet loose in both the arm and the post. There is also wear on the hole in the post and, of course, the rivet itself. What arrangement is best (and possible) to reduce wear. Rivit through a tube? PTFE spray? Robin Madge Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
