I'm stripping down my 1970 Lightning so I can sandblast and paint the frame. However, the swingarm refuses to budge. Can someone explain how to remove it?

Many thanks,

Harvey

With everything stripped, quoting from the 70 book,
"Turn back the tab washer on the SA pivot bolt head, and unscrew the bolt , normal RH thread,
Pull out the SA complete with bushes and bobbins. There is no need to disturb the lock plate on the drive side unless the thread is suspect."

If the bolt is stuck, it may be seized to the bobbins, my 71 has a similar set up, it had never been lubed and was seized very tight to the bobbins, heat and pounding moved it eventually, buy a new bolt , bobbins and bushes before going radge with a hammer .
If its not seized it should be plain sailing.

IT WORKED!!!

I had to add a little heat but it took VERY little and the swingarm bolt slid right on out.

Thanks for your help!
