Ok, we need to remove the shaft patent leather covers on the cart shafts. DID that!! now trying to get the new ones back one. Very tight, won't slide back down all the way? any suggestions? I put them in the sun to heat them up, but still wont go all the way down, took a stitch or two out of the end, nope still too tight. any tricks out there? except build a bon-fire and burn it!!!! ha ha

How about getting them wet and then putting grease of some sort on the shafts themselves so that they'll slide on. Just a thought.
I know wet stuff spreads out better than hot stuff (learned this after taking a basket cover off and then trying to put it back on).
