Mountain board siezed - can I replace the hardware or do I have to buy new trucks?


Hello,

I've got a mountain board with rusted and siezed skate trucks, I can't turn toe-side at all which led to a couple of wipeouts! It's a MBS Core 90 from a few years ago with what look like original MTB ATB skate trucks (not the pro ones available now). The nut is so corroded that a spanner was stripping it, even after I used penetrating oil.

So... if I cut off the nut and remove the kingpin, are they standard parts I can order from a hardware store or do I need to replace the trucks?

I'm new to this forum and also to power kiting and landboarding. I've got myself a Libre Bora 4.5 sq.m and a Firebee 3.0 sq.m, plus a channel truck ATB and a skate truck ATB. I've been out about 5 times with them, got a few short runs but need more practice. I've been ATBing my commute to improve my feel for the board.

Loving it so far!!

Dave
