1RC3012 - Solid Front Kingpins

Oct 31st 2019

We want to remind everybody that is using the Solid Front Kingpins to make sure you put a drop of oil on these from time to time.

The pins are a hardened steel the axle are made from a powdered metal and if those two parts get dry the pin will seize in the axle and the steering will lock up.  There are various companies that make micro oilers with a needle tip and those work perfect to put a drop of oil on this area.  We recommend just putting a drop or to between the spindle and axle and then move the steering back and forth to work the oil down between the pin and axle.

Here are some links to some of those micro oiler with the needle tips that work good for this:

We recommend doing this every week before you go racing just to ensure the steering stays free.  After 3-4 weeks of doing this, we do recommend removing the pin and disassemble the steering blocks from the axle and clean everything good and then re-oil everything.

Please let us know if you have any questions on this and we will be glad to answer any questions you might have.
