I thought I'd see if I can refurbish my pillion pegs. They rattle about, and no longer stay up when folded.

I thought it would be easy enough, but those pivot pins have been in there, quietly corroding for 15 years. The circlip comes off easy, but that pin ain't moving, and I don't want to hit it too hard and burr it over.

Do I need heat?

Yes, but go gently. Apply a bit of penetrating oil on the pins and heat with something pretty tame. Often a hair dryer is enough, or an electric heat gun. Just get it hot enough so as to be uncomfortable to bare skin.

I'm beginning to think I might have to drill it. But that may betray a lack of patience. I warmed it up and encouraged it with a hammer and a punch. It's not moving. So I've soaked it in penetrating oil again, and will rinse and repeat tomorrow.

If you have an IR thermometer heat the bracket it until the alloy is at least above 200⁰c. It may take a long time as the heat will flow away to the bracket.

OK. That's interesting. I have got an IR thermometer (used mostly for checking track temperature when racing with No 2 Son) but didn't use it today. But can confidently say I didn't get anywhere near that temperature. Will that take the paint off?

If it does, Hammerite Smoothrite silk finish looks good
