Hi All
Kudos to Dave73 for his spring compressor idea. I bought a 3 way G Clamp from Screwfix for 4.99 and found a Rachet  Strap with hook ends for 1.50.
Saved me loads of time and skinned knuckles, fantastic Dave73
I'll buy him a Guinness if I ever meet him...

Cheers

Sounds like a good idea - do you have any other details?

Hi
Here are some pics from Dave73, just make sure you put some rag in between the fork leg and ratchet puller to prevent any scratches.
Put the loose end of the strap through the spindle hole, lace the end through the ratchet puller and tighten, I wish I had used this trick before, don't need three hands anymore. LOL

Cheers
