Removing steering cups.....
« on: 16.11. 2010 21:00 »
..from the headstock, 48 A7 frame. This frame has seen hard times as a chop and the cups are in a right state....the threads are damaged so even if I has the proper tool I doubt it would work. Thought about welding a steel disc onto the cup so that I can drift it out but thought I would check here fist incase anyone has a better idea.

Cheers, Paul.

If they are had it and you dont want to use them again then run a bead of weld around the inside of them, let them cool and they will fall out.
