got a hold of some shorter travel plates but ran into a brick wall fairly quickly. on removing the original plates it seems there was some sort of reducer within the bearings of the plates, and naturally they dont want to come out easy.

long story short i cant remove them, has anyone else had experience with taking these buggers out?

cheers

thought pics might help...

these are the buggers in question, rang around for spares for those little bits but it seems they only sell them in full bearing replacement kits :madman:

Try using a rubber mallet work for me last night. I recently did a rebuild had little problems. If that doesn't work use the mechanics trick I know of... soak in hot soapy water for 24h(should fall out by itself by then but...) then mallet the bastard out. It should work. Try some WD40 to help as well. Hope that helps.
