The freezer works ok for taking dents out of a pipe. Plug one end of the pipe and fill it with water, Put it in the freezer, check it often. The freezing water will push the dent out. You can also try an air compressor if you can get a good seal..

-stripped threads/worn screws/rusted screws
-stripped threads in plastic parts
-cracked, sloppy-fitting or severely worn plastic parts
-gear mesh/condition of gears
-hinges should be free-moving, little slop and not bent
-shock shafts/replace shock O rings & oil
-bearings should be free and not notchy or scratchy when turned
-replace main chassis if bent/severely worn/cracked
-rebuild CVDs; replace worn pins and if necessary, worn drive cups
-check/replace worn shock springs (they lose tension over time)
-inspect clutch, de-burr shoes, keep inside of bell free of aluminum buildup
-inspect pipe for obstructions/oil buildup; hammer out dents as needed
-make sure pipe/header springs have sufficient tension; replace as needed

Is this the best list you guys recommend??????
