    Default Layshaft needle bearing removal

    Hey guys
    1967 Triumph T100R here.....I'm trying to replace the layshaft needle bearing from the kick spindle and i'm not having much luck. The manual says to heat up the spindle and simply take a 2x4 and hit the other end of the spindle. This should make the bearing fall out. Well that's a bunch of bull shit. The only other way I is to manhandle it out like a hillbilly. Are there any tricks out there that I'm not thinking of? I've soaked this in penetrating oil, heated the snot out of it, etc. the only thing left is the outer case of the bearing and it seems to be "fused" to the kicker spindle.

    Any Ideas?
    Thanks
    Ian

    I have a 1967 t100c, it does not have a needle bearing on the kick, just a bush. There is a needle bearing in the case though, and it comes out nice enough with heat and a bearing puller.
    Now i have to look at some parts diagram to see if my kick bearing is stock, thanks man! 😀

    Oh yes, there is one. You need to get the spindle sufficiently hot, over 150'celsius, and if it wont come out you make a slightly oversize drift and hydropress it out with oil. Or borrow a slide hammer with the correct size bearing puller.

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I ended up using a dremel with very small (worn down) cut off wheels and then a lot of gentle persuasion and swearing. Do you think i can reuse this?

    Looks good as new 😁 did it fail or why did you pull it? I did mine way back just to be sure, rollers had some pitting from standing with the box full of rain!

    DataDavid, I replaced it because it failed. I've got a basket case here and some of the rollers were missing. this spindle is pretty beat up, hopefully it will work ok...they are pricey!

    Yes they usually last very long given the right conditions i.e rainproof gearbox 😃 with gl-4 90w oil! Not the sludge that was in mine!
