    Could be worse than that, on my first ‘50 frame there was only about the top third of a pogo...however they cross drilled through the frame, spot welded the pogo into the seat tube and then cleaned and moulded the frame. Did a nice job, took me a while to realize it.

    However, it’s much more likely to be rust. Can also be that someone rammed a pogo into a seat tube that had been “modified” to fit an ego or shovel.

    See y’all at Wauseon, if my new heap makes it! (Orange square box Chevy, pretty beat to death)

    I agree, Bob; but I have to say that Kroil does smell better.

    I made an iron pipe puller also, when it popped loose, it broke the rod 1/2 way down.
    I welded hole saws to a pipe and drilled small pieces at a time out, broken springs, rust ect, until it was all out.

    Thanks for posting that. That's what I use and has always worked with a ton of Kroil and whatever I can put in it.
