Anyone know any tricks for disassembling the outer covers on the rear shocks on a CA160 or Honda Dream? I need to paint the top half, and re-chrome the lower half. From the exploded diagrams, it looks like the shock rod screws into the upper mounting flange, but I am not sure how to keep the rod from turning while the flange is unscrewed. Any ideas?
Thanks
Mike

There should be a "jam nut" that locks it into the "cap"...(If I remember correctly)... Sometimes the "nut" only has two flats, and you insert a rod into the eye as the other leverage point.....Been a LONG time....
