King pin dust caps

Recommended Posts

Reassembled both sides in the PE with new king pins and bushing but put can't seem to get the dust caps to stay in place.  When I try and grease them it pushes them out.  The kit came with 59/64 caps.  Did anyone ever use freeze out plugs instead to get a better fit?

When I redid the front end on my '38 last year I used a small chisel to put 3 stake marks around the top (and bottom) of the bore to keep the caps in place. They had previous stake marks when I took them apart. I think if you just tap them in place the pressure of a grease gun will blow them out.
