Every time I do kingpins I have waking nightmares of doing that. I recheck 3 times that I am doing it right, then i question if it was a good idea to end the the recheck sequence with an odd number...

I helped a friend with kingpins two weeks ago and I tried to do that too. He noticed before we got the pin all the way in thus easy to remedy.

All it cost me was one of the dust covers and some time. I was able to push one of the original dust covers out without damage, and one of the replacements when I fixed things.
