1923 Harley Davidson JD. 23JDCA 808. Pulling plunger guide tube #3125-13 out of the frame. 2007

Rap on sides of seat tube with smaller hammer as tension is applied.
Use lots of 3-in-1 oil or the like.

Getting the final two-inches of pull.

Success. Pull spring (pieces) out with magnet on a stick.

Cut threaded stock to at least 12-inch length. Note shoulder on tube; two inches and you should be free. Tube also is plated; probably nickel.

Tapered end that is driven thru hole; grind the two nuts to taper and work for tight fit. Note edge wedge mark in hole.
