stubborn front tire axle!
« on: June 19, 2019, 06:35:27 PM »
took my front tire off and had replaced with new one. Went to put tire back on and cannot get the axle to go through the fork hole no matter how I bang on it! Uggghhhh, I am stopping and waiting for another day= perhaps when I have another set of hands to help.

If it came off it'll go back on.
Have you removed the bolt on the left side of the fork right by the top of the spindle?

               Clean the holes in the forklegs, IE. no rust deposits etc. Then check the spindle for damage, I found some burrs on the shoulder behind the nut thread on a 350. Don't hammer it in !! if it wont go in easily there's something stopping it.
              Is the tubular spacer between the two bearings properly centred. Try the spindle fit without the wheel in place, that will give you some idea of where the problem is.

Unspoiled by progress.
I'm so glad I grew up in the 60s & 70s. I did so much stupid stuff and there's no record of it.............Anywhere !!
