Hey Gang debating on redo my swing arm now on my 62 T110 while oil tank and tool box are getting powdercoated or wait till winter - its real assed tight (have greased it up and hoping it will work in a bit) and has no detectable side to side play - seems like it will be a bitch to get the spindle out (Haynes manual doesn't really address it, workshop manual just suggest its a chore). I have done my norton's but the spindle there was threaded so you can use that to pull it out - any suggestions or secrets for the pre unit spindles that might persuade me to do it now??

It IS a chore without a proper press. If it did need to come off..Hawaiin Tiger made a tool to remove the spindles on Pre-Units and may share with you how to make one and or it might be found in a search on this site per this subject.
I used a Jag jack screw as the basis for this puller. Thanks to Dr. Jaguar (Ray) for the donation of the jack screw. You've got a 62 T110? All the literature says that they were discontinued the previous year. Pictures? Bill

Hi, I am in the middle of restoring a 1957 TR6 and did not have too harder time removing the Spindle with the use of Heat, Hammer and Drift, I am about to replace the Swing Arm Bushings, the manual calls for "Working Clearance", anyone have a more accurate clearance figure for the Swing Arm to Spindle Clearance? Cheers, Jonnie.
HT sorry for delay in response - been in the garage sweating the other stuff 61 T110 - keep getting the year of it and my A10 mixed up...(and all the other wrecks in the garage) will post pic later after together
