You and I are at the same point in our restoration so it looks!! My castle nut would not budge because it was rusted. I put PB blaster in there and used a castle nut wrench I purchased from BenchMarkWorks and it came right off. I bought a cheap $10 wrench on eBay and it did not fit right. I suggest buying the one from benchmarkworks!
Hope that helps!!

This tab holds the side left side of rear fender. More cabinet time needed on this spot. Can you see the small crack in the deep pocket of the previous repair?
The welder missed. See weld bead laid down nicely on tube. But, tube and foot peg mount casting not firmly joined to tube by weld along backside.
This view better shows the area to be reinforced.
More cleaning reveals more cracks. Jim will help me weld them all.
(Actually, we both admire the way Zanieda has been saved again and again.)
