Drive pin fit in rear wheels on 2" Burrell

Post  Dave Saunders on Tue 02 Nov 2010, 6:30 am

Thought I'd try the drive pin in the rear wheel hubs, to make sure the caps didn't foul. The holes through the hubs are undersize, probably about .005". I can run an 8.0mm h7 reamer through them, but I don't know what sort of fit required.
On a different topic I am considering baking the smokebox bits (Firecote VHT), but wondered whether the fumes (assuming there are some), would affect the oven. Of course I could buy a cheap mini oven, but wondered if anyone else had done this!

Oven baking

Post  lynnr on Tue 02 Nov 2010, 6:50 am

Hi

I have used VHT paint on my smokebox and baked in oven at 200 for 2 hours. Then cooled oven to 170 and then cooked dinner with just holding the door open for a minute while taking the smokebox out. No smell and no taint of flavour.

hello Dave.

the pins just need to be a nice push fit. the retaining plate should keep them in place

Thanks for the prompt response. Reaming it with an h7 reamer would give me a snug slide, with no perceptible play, or do I need it to be a slight intrference i.e. tapped in?

Good luck and do tell how you get on
