U-joint installation tool
Moto Guzzi V700, V7 Special, Ambassador, 850 GT, 850 GT California, Eldorado, and 850 California Police models
The purpose of this tool is to prevent the U-joint from becoming
crooked when pressing the U-joint into the carrier bearing. With this tool in place, you may then use a hydraulic press to gently and smoothly push the U-joint into the carrier bearing. Do no press on the PVC. Instead, press on the central splined portion that interfaces with the transmission.
Thanks to Joe Tokarz for sending me this information via email. In Joe's own words and photos:
We talked about this tool a while back. I used it on the Eldo PD and the V-700. I think it works pretty good.
