    When removing stuck Pivot Pins with a torch, should you heat the actual pin or the casing it's in?

    you heat the casing so the metal expands around the pin. dont heat the pin to much it will temporarily swell. Good luck mine were seized something serious.

    Heat up the pivot pin pocket and then hit it with cold water and pound then out and put in the new greaseable ones.
