I need the long bolt out which supports the footrests on my 1953 D1. There seems to be some sort of Alien force holding the rubbers on.

When they are off I assume it will be clear how to pull the bolt. Any help will be gratefully received.

Hi John,

Prop bike safely at Bradley Ray angle,so the rubber is soaking in a bowl of hot water to get things softened up.I`m guessing its the end nut and washer it`s hung up on.Have you got an assistant to hold the bike while you pull?Wear tough gloves to prevent hand injury 🙂

That`s if rubbers are worth saving...or else obviously it`s out with the knife of Stanley.

I use a long piece of wire to slide all the components on in order and photograph,to save me scratching my head come rebuild time.

Parts diagrams aren`t always that clear.

Thanks Blue, with your advice two of us got jiggy with it and heat and extreme force got the devils off. See what you mean about all the bits. I think the washers at the ends were too big which gave us that problem.

UPWARDS AND ONWARDS!!

Do I take it you no longer need one now? I have an original BSA one I think for sale.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.

Thanks chaps, the bolt is slightly bent but I will tweek it back before reassembly!

At moment am just fitting a new bearing in the gearbox drive side. Rex Caunt, excellent man, said do a dry fit with a 4 thou shim on the sleeve gear. Drive the bearing in, them split it again and take the shim out and that should leave you with 4 thou end float.

Makes sense to me. Bearing is in the freezer as I write.
