Hi, I am a newbie so please be gentle with me!!
I am trying to take the swingarm off my 1960 3ta, the manual says "use a soft drift " I have tried several drifts but i am having no luck , the bike has been stood for 15 years and there was alot of grease behind the end caps, i removed the grease nipple and looked into the hole and it looks nice and clean, but i just cannot budge it!!any ideas please, thanks, steve.

Hi Steve,

Forget it with a drift and a hammer.
You really need a hydraulic press.
It is a very tight fit.
I also stumbled with a hammer on my 1966 3TA. A local engineering company with a press could help you.

You probably need new bushes and a spindle.
Bushes need to be slightly reamed after assembly.

Good luck, Jacco

There is a special Triumph tool for the job, which I improvised using a bit of good fine thread studding 3/8th (BSF I think). It's a bit hard to described, but basically, you have the studding about 300mm long. Put two nuts on one end, and screw then up tight together.

Push it through the hole in the spindle and swinging arm. Then, put a piece of 32mm pipe, approx 150mm long on the thread. Then a couple of thick penney washers, large enough not to dissappear up the pipe. You then have another nut on the end.

Put oil or grease between this last nut and the washers, and wind it all up. Keep winding and the stud should wind through the nut, pulling the other two nuts, with the spindle, into the piece of pipe.

If you need to replace the bushes, a similar method (or the triumph tool) may be used.

I haven't got the part number for the Triump made extractor, but the bush reamer (if you need it) is Z-126. The correct triumph tool for removing and rep[lacing the bushes on a T140, is 61-6117. This may do the trick, but I can't confirm.

In actual fact, I'm just about to do the exact same job on a T100SS frame and swinging arm. If you want, I'll work out exactly what you want and let you know. It may be a couple of weeks though.

It may also be worth contacting Len Craig for advice. He's very helpfull and been doing it for years. He may be able to provide the correct tools.

I could send you a picture of what I meant with the tube and studding if you wish (I'm not sure how to get a picture up on here yet, sorry)
