1960 Duo Rear Shock Tool

#1

Post by craig60pan » Sat Feb 23, 2008 2:47 pm

Does anybody have an alternative or the blueprint/diagram/dimensions for harley tool 97010-52A to remove the covers off of the rear shocks?
Hate to pay $200 for a VT copy when it looks pretty simple to build if I had the dimensions.
Thanks

Do you plan on rebuilding your shocks ? Why not send them to "Works Performance" , they will take your info on how much weight you are going to ride with & use and custom rebuild your assemblies with a custom shock.Worth a call to them to see what the cost is . If you can't find there Web sight , let me know , I have had work done on shocks before by them.

The shocks/springs seem pretty good so my plan was to just replace the dinged up covers. Once I have them apart it might be a different story.
I could send the actual shock for them to rebuild if that is the case.

I use this bad boy.... two old clutch plates, some 3/8 threaded rod, half a dozen nuts and washers. Takes a few minutes to take a shock apart, but works like a charm.

Russ - it worked like a charm. It took longer to rethread the poor quality threaded rod from Home Depot than to remove the covers. One shock is decent one is gone. Now the quest to find replacements. Thanks again
