1970 Triumph T100C / Trophy 500

I want to remove both fork legs and take the entire fork leg assemblies to shop for rebuild. I doubt if the forks have ever been removed.

I've read a lot about the special puller that's available to install the fork legs when reassembling, to properly seat in the tapered top fork clamp. But I can't find much about how to disassemble, i.e., extract them from the clamp.

The manual says there's a factory tool (not available) or use an old fork cover cap and whack it with a mallet to try to knock loose and hope for the best. I don't have an old cover and don't want to mar or damage anything in the disassembly process.

Any advice?

Thanks

Thanks for the replies. T100C fork legs successfully removed and rebuilt. Am going to fabricate an installation tool from an old fork cap, drilled for a threaded rod so I can use as a puller. That should work?

Thanks all for the advice and the pic of the fabricated installation tool. My tin ware is at the painter and once the fork covers are back we'll install the fork legs. I'll make a puller tool as in the pic out of an old fork cap.
