I'm taking pics step by step of my swivel replacement using the Britpart DA3181 kit.
The kit was from Paddocks at £69.57+vat
DA3181 | Swivel Housing Kit (later type with steering arm on the bottom - from mid 1960s)
This is what you get:
First off put front axle on stands, I was replacing brake cylinders so I stripped all brake parts off:
Next I had to remove free wheeling hubs so I marked em up
and took cap off by undoing ring if Philip head screws, 6 of them:
I then needed to put the gear back in to stop drive shaft turning when taking nut off, take split pin out of case and unscrew mechanism-put it back on shaft:
remove castel nutand pull hub away:
bend back washer and remove stub nuts, making note of order and pull off stub:
now check distance piece oil seal, mines rusty so will replace:
next release tabs and remove brake back plate:
more to follow.......
