Y'all remember everyone complaining about how hard it is to remove an A10 swing arm cleanly?

Hacksaws, presses, wedges, and whatever else people have had to use, to remove the old through bolt, either type, then the flame and efforts to get rusty old silent bloc bushing remnants out of the swing arms?

Well, I've had an amazing day, and I thought I'd pass the GOOD news along....

Of three A10 frames I've had to juggle parts and swing arms around on, because one of the arms was twisted a bit, all three swing arms came off the frames EASILY!!!!! WHOO-HOO!!!

I had thought that one in particular was gonna be nasty, but I found a bolt to hold the through bolt still, correctly, moved the swing arm up and down to try to exercize the through bolt and bushings, and it EASILY dislodged the surface joint!
Tapped the nut on the end of the through bolt, which again easily moved sideways, then a little further with a rubber mallet with the nut off, grasped the bolt with my hand, and see-sawed the bolt out of the swing arm!

You guys terrorized me with all your tails of hardship, and todays efforts were anti-climactic, to say the least!

Now, sooner or later, I'm gonna have to try to find someplace that can straighten this twisted swing arm....

Yeah Allan,
That's what I kept hearing.
So I was approaching this project with MUCH trepidation!

WHAT a relief!!!!!
