Did I screw up these Honda C70 fork bushings?
Howdy--I'm nearly done refreshing the fork on my C70. I got a kit from DRATV kit, removed all the old parts, and put in the new parts. I pressed in the outer bushings and now the inner ones don't fit (I used a press, and they went straight in with a little force. It felt fine).
They would probably go in with pressure, but then the suspension wouldn't work very well.
Was I supposed to use heat on the suspension arms and get the interference fit to work with heat? I can't imagine I damaged them with the press, they went in really easily. The inner pieces also fit easily before I pressed the outer pieces in. Ugh.
The suspension arms, still on the bike
That stupid press that I thought I was so lucky to find.
The old, worn bushings.
Success! (or so I thought)
It looks so easy. Look how loose the tolerances are.
The mess I'm in now.
