Frisky Problem, any suggestions ?
« on: January 11, 2013, 10:26:33 PM »
Something has fallen off my Frisky and I am not sure what to do.  Perhaps I was braking a little too hard ?
Know any good welders  ???

Thanks John, do you think zinc primer followed by a top coat of cold galvanised would make
a strong enough repair  ???

That bit you've soldered on near the middle looks good.

Is this the result of another darned fungus imported into the country along with Dutch Elm, Ash Die Back etc? Now we have Chassis Shagg. Otherwise its metal Termites.

following all the useful advice to Grant i wonder could the members advise on how to free the Bruetsch steering rack - otherwise the Heinkel one will be used . shame as i like originality where i can . or indeed does anyone recognise what other car uses this system ? almost certainly german mid 1950's

WD40 and blowtorch (not as the same time, unless you want to make a flamethrower!)

Otherwise, maybe try rust removal via electrolosys, but I'm not sure if it does that type of thing...

Could always try soaking it in diesel for a month?

The expensive but best penetrating stuff I have found is Wurth Rostoff. This tends to be a trade product so you might need to get a chum with a garage to buy it. It is 10 times as good as things like WD40. It is more expensive and I keep it for special situations. Ultimate attack is a day or so of working Wurth in then into the vat of diesel for a few weeks. Most things move after that, though really noshed piston/barrels and such where there is electrolytic corrosion and/or damage are often to resistant to move without force.

A drop of war time lard on either end loosens things up quickly
