Frame/swingarm bolt

Post by zx12arrgh » Tue Jun 02, 2020 9:35 pm

Hello all

Stripped the old girl down ready for the resto, you always get at least one problem along the way and mines this bloody bolt :roll:

It is spinning, all be it a bit tightly on the ratchet but it won't come out, I have belted it with a fair bit of force but no!

Am I missing something?

Cheers, Darren

And LOTS of penetrating oil (or diesel)!
