lol, for some reason i thought i was posting there. got a bit confused when i looked in that section to c if i had any replies and my thread wasnt there.lol way to tired it seems :)
Looks really weird but just try his improvised tool with the big bolt, worked wonders for me.
Halfway down the page under fixed cups.
Tried that and it didn't work. If all else fails take the frame to a local metal workers and ask them to tack a long pipe on to the cup for extra leverage, should only cost a couple of pounds.
I wd40'd one for about a month and it eventually came out, the iol had penetrated all the way, maybe soak it in something similar, sorry if you've allready done this.
Also try diesel instead of WD40 etc.
Hi guys, im new here but theres a policy of not starting threads until i have been here 24hrs and i really cant wait that long. I was hoping someone could look at the pictures i have posted and tell me how to remove the fork. Everything else is out, the wedge and the handlebars and the wheel is only on loose. If someone could help I would be eternally grateful.. Thanks
That big nut on the top of the fork; undo it.
