Returning from a hiatus due to health problems I'm now eager to start a new project. Last week I received a vintage Rough Rider which is in need of considerable restoration.
I'm really pleased to finally aquire this model as it holds so many great memories. Although when I returned to RC over a year ago, I wasn't prepared for the demand, and consequently the high price, these cars fetched. And even though my Rough Rider needs substantial attention & refurbishment, it was still pricey.
So, on to the strip down phase and I've encountered an immediate problem. The little grub screws on the rear suspension & pinion gear are all threaded and seemingly impossible to remove. I've considered drilling them out, but I'm worried about damaging the housing threads.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hope you're all keeping well. ...
