Cups Pressed into Place
Nice fit. So easy to do with a cup press. I like the shine. Thought I had the Schwinn in-print to the top, must have twisted while pressing.
Crank Grease Packed and Reassembled
Next I reassembled the crank. I packed and greased all the bearings and parts. I really like the way the crank cleaned and polished. Very pleased with the way it looks back on the frame.

Next I am going to work on the headset and fork. The front fender screw is rusted into place. It is not budging with WD-40 or even PB Blaster. I will let is soak longer, but may have to drill and tap a new screw. Would not be a problem, I would just clean everything in place, but the fender screw is loose by about 3/16" and the fender hangs loose.

I cleaned someones attempt at repainting the head tube. I see why they repainted with the missing paint. Maybe I should have left the paint, but it was just dirty goo, and cleaned off easy with a little Goo Gone and soft brass brush. The original paint that still exists looks fine under the old goo.

That is all for now, will post headset photos as I go.
