<< I know this may have been discussed to death in the past, but I am in a jam and need that info again. I have an early 70s 3TTT Bar and Stem that are two separate items. How do I get the stem on the bar without scratching the living daylights out of the bar. Do I use 30w oil, 30w saliva, car jack or what? Any and all help is sincerely appreciated.

You need to spread the clamp of the stem slightly. Nitto makes a nice tool for this but you can use a coin clamped in a vice like we used to do.
