Default Re: Electra 09 w/EYE bolt/body problem

First of all, Welcome to the forum!

Where exactly is the burr on the frame? Is it possible to take pictures of the burr?

Could you take pictures of the bolt and the gouges?

Without seeing anything these are the suggestions I have:

1. File/sand out the burr. I would start with a file, get the burr down and as smooth as possible. Then I would smooth it out with sand paper, starting with 600-800 grit, working up to 2000 grit, just to make sure its smooth. After this is all done, I would try the bolt and see how it moves.

2. If the bolt still feels tight, I would sand down the bolt, again using 6-800 grit to start. I would sand it a little bit, then test fit it, and repeat until it seems to be moving smoothly. You don't want it too loose, otherwise you will lose considerable efficiency, but you do want it to move freely. Once it seems to be moving okay, smooth the bolt out using progressively finer sand paper, up to 2000 grit.

If you do any of what I have said above, take your time, go slow, and take off as little material as possible.
