Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

Looks like I have a rear engine seal leak so I decided to tear her down and replace it. I have never taken it down this far but I felt it was time I jumped in. All went well until I tried to break loose the right swing arm bearing stud. It would not break the torque and the stud rounded. I heated it up and tried again but no good. I'm not coming up with a fix. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm trying hard not to give up just yet.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

I just ordered the Irwin Nut / Stud extractor set. I'm hoping it is heavy duty enough.

It comes in tomorrow. I'll let you know.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

Like I said in the phone call. With the exhaust out, the cross member removed and drive shaft pulled it is possible to get the swingarm out with only one pin removed. You are on the right track with the extractors as that is what I have used twice! Better to start out with Saddlemans great 14mm socket. Since I received mine I have yet to find a pin I couldn't remove. Good luck with the oil leak and hope you make it to SMFR in Oct.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

I probably have a spare bearing stud or two in my parts drawers. Not sure if they are the FD ones, the swingarm ones, or both. If you post a pic with a ruler for size reference, I will see if I can grab the right part(s) for you and post back. If I have them, all I ask is that you email me a pre-paid USPS Priority or Express Mail mailing label (generate at USPS.com and save as PDF). No charge for the part other then the obligation to pay it forward next time you have a surplus part that someone else needs.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

Tony,

As usual you always are there to help. I attached the photo of the pivot pin I need (pretty chewed up isn't it?) which is the right front. I also need to replace the left rear (final drive) pivot if you have one of those. Let me know which if any you have and I will get the Prepaid label out to you. You are a good man.

Thanks
Norm

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

So the update is that the Erwin extractors worked great. On first try after heating it really well the end of the stud broke off leaving a very short stub left to work with. I ground the stud down a bit to get the extractor to seat well. I pounded with a hammer as I used the breaker bar and it finally released. I couldn't believe it.

I got the transmission out today and am working on fixing several oil leaks with the help of John of course. I'm replacing the rear engine seal, the front and rear tranny seals, and the O ring for the starter. I am replacing the clutch as well.

I was hoping to have it back together for the fall trip to Iron Horse but some of the parts need to be ordered so I will not have it back together in time.

Thanks as usual for the help extended here.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

Holy crap, Norm! That takes chewed up to a whole new level!!

I believe that I have at least one of the parts, see the photo below.


I have more parts, so if these are not what you need, I can dig further.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

LOL. Way past chewed up. I'm lucky to have gotten it out especially after it snapped off. John Zeiler gave me the push to think I could do it and it shocked me when it came loose.

Anyway, yes. You show two of the pivot pin I am looking for (left and right of your photo. I think they are the same). If you could also find the one in the second photo I sent you then you could include that but just that one pivot pin would be perfect. Would it be easier if I send you some cash via paypal? or a check rather than a prepaid label? Whatever works best for you. Let me know and I can get that out today.

This is a huge help and I appreciate it.

Thanks Tony

Norm

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

I have the pivot pin set aside for you, as well as a USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Envelope, and I will try to look for the other part when I return later today.

I believe the easiest way is to email the pre-paid label, although I appreciate the offer to send cash/check/paypal/etc. This way there are no fees, no depositing, no transferring, and you know that you paid actual shipping.

You can use your address as sender and recipient, and just check the box near top right of the screen to indicate you sending from another zip code (75070). You can email PDF attachment label to my handle @ aol. Please include my email on the shipping label request so I get tracking updates and know that it got there.

Click, click, click, and Bob's your uncle.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

Tony,

Just curious if you got the part(s) sent out yet? I get the other parts necessary to start putting it back together tomorrow. Let me know how you made out.

Thanks

Went out today using your shipping label... You should be able to check it online at USPS.com.

Re: Rounded off Bearing Stud - Suggestions?

He is on Vacation out of town. His plan was to get as far as he could before he left (29th). Then finish up and try to make the SMFR gathering on the 18th-20th. Last time I spoke to him he didn't have it and that was the 26th. Everything was going well at that point with an engine start test and tranny installed.

Shoot! You should be able to polish those little scratches out with some emery cloth!

Yipes!
