    Or hammering in the front wheel axle with the palm of their hand. Do that a few times a day unless of course it was that loose of a fit.

    @lyle … so, you think they did the manufacturing diff’ in … ’52 ..’51 ?? We all know ’53 was the last official year for that era of Indians…….. hence the low qty

    Awesome video … always enjoy seeing ‘the good ole days!”
