Rear spring pivot bolt?

Post by Langan » August 27th, 2021, 11:28 am

30 AA rear spring rear pivot bolt removal? I removed the cross pin but cannot remove the main pin. Does it unscrew or press out? Has a screwdriver like slot

My guess is that you are referring to AA-5799 pin for the rear spring eye. With the lock pin removed from the seat, the AA-5799 pin slides out either direction. The slot on the end was for aligning the pin for the lock pin. I have had to use lots of head and heavy drivers to get the pin removed (rusted in the seat and the spring eye).
