Couldn't have had the long summer tour without his help replacein the front wrist pin bushing.
Twas a bitch to get the wrist pin outa the piston but with some custom made toolin it was done.
Here is the reason for all the noise after removal.

Other than a little scuffin inside the piston both the wrist pin and exterior of the piston were in great shape.
Couple shots of tools to do the work in the frame.

The finished result, after piston reinstallation,wasn't good enough for Larry so we repeated the extraction,installation and honeing of another new bushing.

Had a hard time giving him $$ for his shop time,tool wear,deluxe basement accomodation and meals for my 3 night stay.Thanks to Carmel also for the great meals.
