don't use alloy, plastic is better

Tightening the lower king pin to the standard steering hub is a bit tricky on the BD. Some of the guys at our club regularly overtighten them and strip the threads out of the steering hubs. Some (like me) are more careful when tightening the king pin and all too often end up looking for them around the track.

Any best practises you would like to share (other than aluminum steering hubs)?
How to do it right?

before you assemble screw in screw with downward pressure to cut clean thread. then with a pin wipe a little supaglue around cut thread allow to dry then assemble,each time you pull apart repeat supaglue process.

Default King pins

sounds simple enough, but i just cut a thin strip of tape to go over the bottom king pin, from inside the c hub, and finish between the out side, "rarle used" lower hole and the actual lower arm. Had a pin completly stripout the steering knuckle, and it stay in perfectly cos i dint notice unitl i was doing my regular maintanence after the meet.
Simple and cheap

Cheers

Simon
Q: anyone got the aluminium diff halves yet? any one seen a price?

leave out the black spacer that goes with the lower kingpin

This is my style of doing it. .... you don't have to copy mine.

Lets say when your steering knuckles are still brand new, I use dremel and drill the kingpin hole until the drill bit went through. Find a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the kingpin's hole. After drilling, I blow the burrs, and I give a drop of super glue inside the holes. Let it dry for 10 minutes.

Before you tighten the screw, drop thin silicone oil into the hole and screw it. Use your feeling, when the screw is stop then, it means stop. You can use longer screw like 3x10mm now. Don't use 3x12mm screws because it will hit the CVD. BTW, you need flange tube ( from Xray ) in replacement from original yokomo kingpin screws.
