Default Reverse kingpin for Century plate?

Doc,

Is there a drop in reverse kingpin for a stock SG Century plate?

Harry's stud... Same thing used in the DA45s.. Actually it fits in all the aluminum SG plates and there is absolutely no reason not to switch..

Default Roger that.

Would I obtain those from ... Sure Grip ... ?

Also are there replacement delrin pivot cups to replace the rubber ones? And where does one get those if available?

Well they make them... The are named after Harry Ball who made the originals and then could not figure out how to market them.. A man way head of his time...

No.. The Delrin cups are meant for ball pivots.. The Century pivot is rubber bushed and the trucks will not fit in the Delrin cups...

Doc, what would I gain by installing a reverse king pin in a SG Classic? I'm clueless.

Simpler to adjust the action and much less risk of damaging the hanger by not re-tightening the lock nut after making an adjustment..

Doc and I changed my kingpins on my Snyder Super Deluxes and I love them. When we added the king pins I also had him put the purple urethane cushions on my skates. After some initial and very simple adjustments my skates feel great. Too bad I will be taking them off for a possible repair in the near future due to a cracked hanger and a damaged pivot cup on another hanger.

We also put them on my Chicago Gold Medalist plates that are going back onto my 297's so that the Snyders don't fall apart from under me.

Heck, yeah! One-tool adjustment, no more worrying about the locknut! I do presume, not having done much mechanic-ing in a while, that the original locknut holds the new pin in place?

Thumbs up Correct

The original king pin lock nut will hold the stud in place..... unless it has issues of it's own. I would suggest getting new lock nuts too, it's not like 4 of them will break the bank.
