    Wards Riverside Fork Disassembly

    I have recently acquired a 1967 WRB 350 stored poorly in a barn, am working through the bike and have a glitch, I cannot get the chrome tube off of the top of the lower fork. I need to do this to get to the nut that holds the seals in. Does not appear to be threaded, tried gentle heat. Need advice before I do something foolish and mess up the chrome tube. I see no way to grip it inside or out without possibly causing damage.

    I figured it out...pressed on, gripping the chrome tube was the trick because it is really tight fit. Used heavy split pipe, that had ID very close to tube OD and chucked up in an old manual lathe, that gripped it without crushing or scratching, then twisted the lower fork off the tube.
