How do I remove the axle from a 1948 JS front wheel ? I took off both nuts on drum side and tapped it but not coming out,, Do I need to tap harder or am I missing something?

Didn't anyone on the AJS / Matchless forum have an answer for you?

On later AJS's, the axle forms the inner of the wheel bearings, so it won't tap out! Possibly the same setup on your wheel.

Yes indeedy, you need to undo all the lock rings, and the bearings come out trapped on the axle.
Grease them well after cleaning them up, they are rather expensive to replace.

Great idea back when such things were cheap, for long trouble free use, but dashed expensive now...

If yours are shot then I think that some people have done a mod to make a much cheaper bearing fit. Search the Jampot site for the mod as I am sure thats where I have seen it.
