    LA115 Spindle will not turn in the Axle

    I have a LA115 and the spindle will not turn in the axle.
    I have removed the c ring and I have tried beating down on the spindle with a mallet and it will not budge. When hitting from the spindle from the side, it will move a few mm at a time. I am afraid that I will break the axle.
    Any suggestions? Heat? Some sort of penetrating oil? Or do I need to replace the whole damned front end?
    Thanks

    Hard to tell what spindle you are referring to. But you mentioned the front end. Are you saying the front wheel is not turning on the spindle (not really an axle)? Because that is stationary, the only thing that should be turning is the wheel. Or are you saying that the you can’t get the wheels to steer/turn?
    I might be able to help you (I have an LA135 that had a difficult to steer/turn spindle), but need more info.

    Below is the LA115 front end. Perhaps you can tell us which components are not cooperating.

    Thanks! That helps. I suspect lack of grease has things rusted together. If possible, apply some heat from a torch to the axle area where the spindle passes through. Once hot apply some penetrating oil. Let cool and heat again and apply more penetrating oil. Find a piece of pipe that will fit over the axle stub and use it for leverage turning the spindle back and forth. A combination of heat, penetrating oil and leverage should loosen the spindle.

    With a lot of persistance you may get it free. If your front wheels were toed outward before this started, (as a lot of these do) do yourself a favor and replace the axle and spindle.

    x2 what j said. Some heat, some penetrating oil and keep working it, it should come out, just takes some time.

    Yup, what these guys said.. if you want to tap the thing back and forth use a block of wood so the spindle don't get damaged..Also, if you try driving it out use a brass rod/punch.. be careful not to start mushrooming the thing.. Just have patience..it will come out...
