M72 front fork fitting.

Postby nils gotz » Tue Feb 09, 2016 3:15 pm

HI all, I've just got a set of new forks for my bike. I removed the old ones a but all the bits I took off on a make shift table, then I dissembled the new one's and layer out the bit's in order on the table to,.
Then as I started to install the forks the bike fell off the timber it was on and hit the table sending all the bit's flying.
The bit I'm not sure about is the brass nut with the flanges on, is it surpossed to go under the yoke or above it.
I've been looking for a decent picture, as my manual picture is crap.

Fitted new forks,
now the front wheel rubs on one of the fork legs. The fork legs are 28" from top top bottom on both sides,I've installed a new front axle, I've tried three different wheels, with no play from coming from the wheel bearing, and all pull to the one side, are all the wheels f@#$
or am I missing the obvious

They came of the with the bike, don't look like they've been touched, didn't have this problem with the old fork.
So I'm scratching my head here.

If the old forks were genuine M72 items, I have a feeling that the spacers in the wheel are different from later models.
