I thought this would be a good day to strip down the Cushman and get it ready for the "Wipe-n-Spray". I rounded up a 7/16-1/2-9/16 and a Crescent wrench, Band Aids and a bottle of peroxide. Everything unbolted pretty easily until it came to the brake pedal. It`s held in place with a 3/8X2" pin that goes through a 3/4" bung. The cotter pin came right out but the pin didn`t. I tried heat, PB Blaster, and a air chisel with no luck. Time to break out the Boeing Surplus drill bits and 1 1/2 hrs later it`s done. The pin has been rusted in there since 1957 but I`m blaming it all on the Monkeys Greatest Hits album I was listening to. Tomorrow I`ll remove the wheels and forks, buy some degreaser and take it to the car wash.
