We’ll the brass bushing came out with an easy tap. So it looks like it was a light press fit that held it in? Between the drum switch pressure and the hub connecting to the drum switch, there’s really no chance of it coming out.
Drum switch mystery solve…..
Tapered pin, removes the back half of the switch, which is the only thing holding the rod and switch in.
Then the rod comes right out.
And there’s a plate that comes off.
Then there’s a spring that pushes a pin behind it. Anyone know what this is for?
This is good news and will save a ton of time. I was prepared to strip the entire machine to bare metal. Where the OEM paint is stable, o will leave and prime over. Then body filler, sand then color, seal, etc.
