OK, refreshing a 2009-model Hemlock, with the last-but-one seatstays and the current rocker (ie machining on the outside of the rocker, nicely tapered crossover between the 2 sides at the rear pivot)
Just done the main pivot and the main linkage pivot, no bother. But the 2 at the back of the rocker and the 4 (2 sets of 2 together) in the rearmost pivot are defeating me...
The rearmost pivot (chainstay to seatstay) seems to be just 2 bearings sat in a hole, no shoulder/journal at either end, but Mindless Brute Force has failed to move either set a millimetre.
The ones on the rocker seem to be a standard 2 bearings with a spacer tube in the middle, but I can't get any purchase on the inside of either bearing- the centre spacer is tight against both bearings and can't be convinced to move enough to get a drift on the bearings. So without a blind puller I can't shift it just now
Any suggestions before I take it to my fixer man and say "make it better"?
