Early jubilee forks repairPosted by barry_davies1 at March 14. 2017
Does anyone know
Parts 21750 and 21751
a) how to remove the fork bushes -- sweated on or force fit?
b) where can I get a set of said bushes, and oil seal?
c) do I have to be brutal - cut them off and get a local machine shop to make me some new bronze ones?
Any ideas please

From memory of many years ago I think the bushes are actually soldered on : so you could try a spot of heat from a gas torch to melt the solder and they should come off. BUT you need to locate some replacements first. I don't know any sources.
The Jubilee forks are the same item as some models Francis Barnett and James so you could try some FB and James suppliers. The James was/is fairly popular with trials persons so this is a likely source.
How bad are yours ? If all else fails option (C) is possibly your only source.
Unless someone knows better !.

Someone on here made a new pair of sliders from some hydraulic tube and had bushes made to fit, others talked of reaming the original slides with a boring bar.
