  • King Tip of the day - Humpback lift arm

    To easily get the rubber off of a lift arm simply immerse it in your part cleaning tank for about 2 weeks.

    The pad will then pull off and the contact cement will come off easily.

    what are you supposed to replace it with? I have a much quicker method but probably not as "safe".

        well I had one snap below where the upper bolt is welded in, I welded it back and it pretty much melted the contact cement off so the rubber is barely hanging on. I'm sure your method is as I said "safer" and nicer, since some of the rubber melted as well. I'd love to be able to replace it, I was just asking what you are supposed to do after you get it separated, since I'm not aware of being able to purchase a new rubber from lifelong.

            The new pad works pretty well too.

                  Had a two of them out a couple weeks ago, i sprayed them with gumout carb cleaner and wiped them down good then took some 80 grit to them to prolong replacing. So far so good.
