(36886-41) Foot Lever Pin Peening

Can be done with an air rivet gun. Support and protect the bottom (cotter key side) of the pin using 7/16 and 3/8" drill stops stacked on top of each other. Pix later. I smashed this one flat because the cotter key end touched some metal support and had to grind it off. Bitter loss. The stud on the other side was pounded to a perfect dome, too.
Pay attention to every move you make. Think about everything twice or you can quickly destroy a part. The disbelief afterward is spellbinding.

Got the foot lever bracket . Replica stuff. Black powder coated. Nice. Too bad the air rivet gun is expensive. A peened rivet looks better than welding/melting the spring stud onto the bracket. Sometimes U.S. Airtool (USATCO) has re-built rivet guns for $150-200. (310) 323-1953, ask for Mike W. This is a rebuilt gun. A Chicago Pneumatic CP-4444 from USATCO, Gardena, CA. The peener is a 3/16 (# SM W-4356). Sized for rear sprocket rivets. An 1/8" peener is available for the rear sprocket dowel pins.

The group of foot lever parts. Pure Taiwan. Powder coated lever bracket. Parkerized (phosphated) foot lever. Bracket has Oilite bronze bushings (no zerk fitting necessary). Perfectly sized to the foot lever shaft.

The footclutch group. Peening of the spring stud later.

1. 7/16 and 3/8" drill stops will support the steps in the stud.
2. Holding the rivet shank vertical will eliminate the half-moon divot I put into the rocker lever.
3. Finished rivet (replete with un-sightly crescent). :roll:

The threaded carriage boss is not for our year. Hacksaw.
