    Hey all. Buy one of Todd's CARC tools. Even if you don't need one it's a piece of high tool box art. There are times I just pull open the drawer and stare at mine! It's a beauty!

    Todd, I've been eying it for a while, it's on my wish list with a couple of other things you offer.
    For that price it's hard to justify making your own!
    Kevin, I admire your resourcefulness!

    If you've got your Linkages off/apart for cleaning & greasing, you may as well fit Grease Nipples.

    You'll also need to drill small (2mm or so) exit holes for the old dirty Grease to escape while you're pumping the nice fresh stuff in.

    You can do the Swing-Arm Bearings as well, but due to the Frame design around them, it's only possible via a modified Spindle.
