Question about 1982 Moto Guzzi V 50 III
This is a job I have done manymany a time on all sizes of Guzzis but this one is a real pig I have stripped the back end of the bike and now the s/arm with drive box is in my workshop but will they come apart? no way! I have tried Plus Gas, and also lots of heat but so far it aint moved a inch, the drive box is now just the casing as I stripped the insides out, any ideas?? ,I think that the box is siezed to the swinging-arm, via the studs, so maybe it would be worth trying that freeze-and-release spray that is available from Halfords, and other Motor Shops. I suspect that electrolytic corrosion has probably occurred between the studs on the drive-box, and the holes on the swing-arm flange, that they fit into. If all else fails, heat the studs up with a powerful blow-lamp, then lob a bucket of cold water on them. Maybe that will shock them off.,,,
