    Dune cycle springer joint stuck...

    Are there C-type retainer clips on the opposite bearing caps? If not, it’s likely epoxied. I would take it to an old school auto parts store and get an opinion.

    Tubing expander question

    Looks pretty light-duty. Lots of A/C tube is thin walled. How about making an expanding mandrel to fit? Make one with a long taper, like a Morse taper or Braun and Sharpe. Might require a few practices on scrap and re-positioning a few times. Automotive tail pipe expander kits start at 1...

    Homemade minibike tire mounting tool

    It has really helped me to clamp the bead with a padded-jaw, non-marring Vice Grip. It captures the tire bead and prevents me from making several trips around the wheel. That and some baby powder for the tube and tire. Good ideas here, thanks everyone.
