    image.jpeg I need help. Will someone out there post a photo of what this area should look like. The downtube is loose in the casting. I'm thinking of welding the pieces together. Is a steel sleeve involved? And, what is the hole in the side for? I've drilled out the post and would like to head in the right direction. Thanks. image.jpeg

    I heard from someone in my thread on my round-tube '36 SK that a cotter-pin type item goes in that hole. It was originally steel...which seems to always be the problem with the SKs when a dash of time is added.

    Also, here's another article with a fairly detailed repair involving drilling that cotter pin.

    Not a fan of the repair detail on that SK. BUT to each their own. 14bef1bbf13dc2fdc4a3c0b9a8bff048.jpg

    ...and here's mine...rusted to sh*t.

    Hope that helps!
