A friend is looking to run a spool w/ a 45 springer. Does anyone make rockers for this application, or know of a trick?

Thanks.

uhh, am I missing something?

mount wheel on axle
make spacers to center
voila
don't see what the rockers have to do with it?
Rockers have different size holes, 74 springers were drilled larger than 45's. If the springer is a 45 they have the 5/8 in diameter hole that is perfect for a spool wheel, if it's a 74 springer then you need to make a stepped (sp) axle..

In the old days, they would drill out the 45 rockers to the required size (5/8").
Also seen 74 rockers used, but it doesn't look as good due to the different shape of the rockers. I prefer to use the Paughco rockers. Nice new bushings and the right size for the axle.

stock 45's had 3/8" axles i think. just drill them out to 5/8 or 3/4 to fit the spool axle, or just buy paugho rockers. they also sell axle spacers, but anyone with a lathe can make them without a problem.
