    I've learned a lot from from your other build thread so I look forward to following you on this build.

    Nothing special here, but this is how I split the tanks. Using a soldering iron I worked my way around the tank on the seam and inserted popsicle sticks to keep the halves apart (the job would've been much more pleasant had each stick originally held a treat). The corners were tight and I changed to utility knife blades.

    Not much to report (things got very busy with work... the paying kind) but I did acquire a new wrench. I like tools, I've got three sets of them (warehouse, home, shed) but I didn't have a suitable wrench for removing the head adjusting cone in order to remove the forks. I used a strap wrench until the strap started to shred, so then I bought this beauty, an adjustable hook spanner :



    Worked great and now I have another tool! Got it from ZORO.com. Their item# GO494155, $27.84 (it's marked PROTO, mfg #JC472) Should work on my bicycle, too!

    Well, not much to to report as it’s now the summer ride season and I concentrated on getting my Chief ready, and then riding it! But I have run into a question about the holes in the casting for the kicker return stop. The forward hole had a broken off bolt in it.



    I tried a couple of methods for removal but then resorted to drilling and re-tapping. When I drilled the front hole I could go deep into the casting, but with the rear hole it appears that there is either another broken bolt in there, or that rear hole requires a short bolt as the frame tube is brazed far enough into the casting to keep the hole shallow.

    So I wonder if anyone can tell me if the rear hole for the kicker stop is normally shallow like this? Thanks!
