First post here. Just got my fathers old 68 firebird scrambler running today after 20 years of sitting in a garage. I’m working on getting it road-worthy, and have a few questions:
1. I would like to replace the wheel bearings, part number 42-5819, but I’m having a hard time finding any that aren’t made in China. Anybody know where good bearings can be found?
2. The few grease zerks obviously don’t work with my standard grease gun. Do people usually replace these with different zerks?
3. 2 out of 3 screws on the mirror just spin in place, and I doubt the one that functions will hold the mirror in position at speed. Has anybody taken one of these apart without damaging it?
Thanks in advance. It’s hard to find many resources for these old bikes; I’m glad I found this one.
