..Hi,I'm putting together a 1967 T120R frame BUT can't get the swinging arm in?...The problem is the 'cupped' washers with the O rings stop the arm from going forward to get the bolt in?...I'm about 1/4"short to align the holes up & if I maybe use the earlier 'washers' it would work..I have 'photos & will post them tomorrow...VERY confusing indeed..Thanks in advance...
...I do not and cannot accept the principal that incompetence justifies dismissal... T120R '67 6T 1965 T110 1958
Can't say when the change over happened, but the 67 doesn't take the later O-ring style cups, as they're bigger. You can easily make room for them by grinding though, I've done it myself, or simply buy a pair of the original ones.
I had the same thing happen to me with a '67 frame, turned out I was using a later swing arm and associated cupped washers, I switched to the earlier flat washers and all was well. I aslo used the earlier swingarm, as the machining for the o-rings was different, although I don't know that the later one wouldn't have worked. I also just checked my '67 parts book, no mention of o-rings or cupped washers.
I have a 66 6T and my Parts book clearly shows a washer ( called an end plate) and googling image of the part number shows a plain washer, no mention of any O ring at all either on Google images or the parts book No 4
...hello 6T I had the same problem with a 67. I had only the frame so was easier. I put all the frame on a bed and after a lot of massage and hit with a hammer and a piece of wood (with plenty of cushioning on the swing arm) the other end plate decided to fit but then with the frame and wheels I needed a jack and a friend to see the hole in the LS to help the spindle find the hole.
