Starting to install the new pillar/stub axle assemblies.  I find I cannot remove the pillar because it fouls the frame.    I am thinking I will have to remove the screwed in sleeve ("guide tube according to parts list").  Thing is, Freyja and I did this in the garage at Sacro Monte and I canot remember how we did it.
The locking ring at the bottom is dam' tight.  I think I may have to use a little heat after I have made a suitable spaniard to fit it.

Yes, the sleeve has to be removed first. It will only just come out then! Good luck.

Thanks, John.  Do they screw in or just slide in like the bottom ones?

When the ring 101058 is undone, it will slide out.

101012 upwards or downwards?
I removed the ring 101058, having made a tool and applied a lot of heat and force.   It would have come easier if I had known about the locking pin 10721 hidden at the back which pinged out after a few turns.
I have tried pulling it out using a 5mm spacer and 101014 to pull upon it, thinking it would come once it started to move.  No such luck.  "Slide out" is not in its vocabulary.    It has shifted a couple of mm. but with great difficulty.     Either I have to make a thicker spacer or install 101014 and tap it downwards.   Pulling it up would seem better...
I do not remember such struggles when Freyja and I did it on the other side in Sacro Monte!

I think it slides up when the bottom ring is undone, but it was a while ago when I had mine apart, so I could be wrong. You might have to tap it a bit to persuade it.

Finally got it off this morning.  The sleeve was so tight I had to hammer the spanner to try to extract it (using a spacer made from an old ball bearing) so I tapped it down, cleaned it all and then drew it upwards easily.  When I do the other side I will take pictures and post it in the technical thread.

Fitting new spring thrust bearings and wondering what grease - very thick "axle grease" or moly which is thinner but higher shear.   Any ideas?

I think they live in oil. Were they not covered in oil when you removed them? If not, I suppose Moly would do the job best.

Looking forward to seeing the"other" side before I start on mine!

Whilst installing the new pillars I took advantage of the opportunity to determine the true angles (camber and castor) of the pillars themselves with the aid of a right angles bubble level and a spacer.   Not the most successful photographs - I need to make an appointment with Zaphod Beeblebrock's surgeon to have an extra arm fitted.

Marc Bondini, Australian Aurelia guru, found some "angle measuring gizmo" that was about 1 " square and magnetic, and you could just snap it onto the vertical element, and it would tell you its angle.... he got them off Amazon.....

Cheaper than a third arm, too.

Perhaps something like this?
