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??

thx!
mike

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.



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?

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.

It is a sliding fit which is as tight as you can get it and have it still move freely. It is best to have a machine shop do this who can insure that the bushings are machined in parallel.
