i have a very stubborn 94 yz250 linkage bolt that dpo ran with no nut on it or grease for apparently forever. it's really in there - gonna weld a stud to the head of it and make a puller i think.
I thought I might leave that swingarm bolt alone, but I could not. Time for the jack hammer:

Lots of penetrating oil, spun the bolt with my air impact driver, and knocked that bolt out with the jack hammer:

Time to place an order with All Balls for the swingarm bearing kit:
