...will be okay with 1/8" thick steel pump connetor on the lever? The flat piece of steel that travels from lever to piston. What I'm doing is slotting the lever like what the Crosman guns has at 1/8" slot so the steel can fit between and fuction (the Mac1 billet lever for example). This leaves me 1/8" on either side of steel to fasten/rivot/Chicago-screw (like the FX Indy) to link to. Will that be enough meat?
Also, what should the piece of flat steel be made out of from lever to piston? Tim stated he uses only mild steel for his levers. During our conversation I spaced asking him the type of metal that piece is. It certainly seems much, much harder and stronger than mild steel, as all levers inspected do.
Slotting the lever is the slim-line way I'd like it to be done, but could go double by placing the steel strips on the outside of lever, but this makes for a wider pump slot, hich is what I'm trying to prevent. Want strong for sure! This is a side stroker gun.
