A Technical Session was held on Jan 31, 2009 at Clyde's garage to demonstrate how to disassemble both the 7-tooth and the 2-tooth steering assemblies in preparation for cleaning, repairing, and re-building. A large group of Hawk A Club members were on hand to enjoy the session.
John and Randy led the demonstration but had help from the members in attendance. Ron (standing on right) brought his early Model A 7-tooth steering assembly that was used in the demonstration.
The first step in the disassembly is to remove the spark advance and throttle control rods and do not this we need to remove the levers from the bottom of the rods by shearing the pins that hold the levers to the rods. This turned out easier said than done.
