Question about Royal 5300 Upright Vacuum
I have an old(er) Royal upright. The handle fork spring is broken and I have a new spring, but I'm having some difficulty removing the bolt through the fork and spring. Do I need a bigger hammer or better technique?
This is actually fairly normal, and there's no real easy way to get that bolt out. Your best bet is to continue turning it as if you were unscrewing it while applying pressure to the opposite end. A narrow piece of metal can help, especially if coaxed with a ballpeen hammer. If possible, you can try to apply some pressure upward on the spring to keep it from holding the bolt too tightly, but this only works about half the time.
Getting the bolt back into place is also something of a nightmare, as you have to use your thumbs to hold the new spring in place while forcing the bolt back into place. I've had indentations on my thumbs from holding that spring many times.
