When you start the disassembly, take pictures with your cell phone and do a paper diagram/drawing of where all the spacers and washers go in the center joint.

I rebuilt a Roadmaster when I bent the arm, a LOT of spacers and washers were used. It wasn't hard work, but you have to be patient when aligning everything back up. It's a good feeling when it's all rebuilt and works and looks like new again. Make sure you get some cleaner and possibly a bottle brush down inside those tubes, getting them nice and clean. Better yet, ship it to "Fire Up" for a good cleaning and paint work. His repairs are what happens when you retire and no longer have a fire truck to polish!

I have a nice cover for mine when on the road. At home, I use to remove it and store it my shed between trips. That killed my back. Now, I just use a black plastic trash bag at home and wrap up the entire assembly. It keeps it clean and out of the weather.
