Sample text

05mm, reaming is required. In the next step you make sure that the reamer/pilot on the tool is the correct size and replace it if necessary. Reamer/pilot dimensions cannot be seen when the reamer or pilot is installed on the handle. Reamers cannot be measured to determine their dimension. Most bike shop have one set of reamers/pilots. Often, the easiest way to determine which reamer/pilot is on the handle, is to look at the markings on the reamers and pilots that are not on the handle. Use a process of elimination to determine which size must be on the handle.

5 – 5 5 – MILLING THE FORK CROWN 6 . [ ] Apply ample cutting oil to crown-race seat and counter-reamer. 7 . [ ] Place tool on fork column. 8 . [ ] With weight on handles, turn tool clockwise several full turns. 9 . [ ] Pull tool up to check progress of counterreaming or facing. 10. [ ] If counter-reaming only, repeats steps 6–10 until fork-column base is counter-reamed fully at outer perimeter. With bottom bracket and head-tube facing, the only factor determining whether the facing is completed is whether fresh metal has been cut for a full 360°.

If facing, repeats steps 6–11 until facing cut is a complete 360° at outer perimeter of crown-race seat. 12. [ ] Remove tool from fork. 13. [ ] Remove fork from front wheel or from fork platform. 14. [ ] Clean fork and tool. 15. [ ] Use appropriate procedures/worksheets to install fork, headset, and stem as necessary. 6 – SIZING AND THREADING FORK COLUMNS ABOUT THIS CHAPTER This chapter is divided into two sections. The first is about sizing the fork column, which includes procedures for threaded and unthreaded columns, and the second section is about repairing fork-column threads or adding fork-column threads.
