Shawn the bitch is heat transfer between the two parts. I use my torch to heat the fork with the shaft in the vise, a 2x2 block of wood and a heavy hammer at the ready. Here again two people one to heat and one to hammer the block on top of the collar.

Thank you for that. Not sure my wife will appreciate me doing that in the kitchen.
I would never have come up with that solution.

 Hello All,
This nosegear was bent, so I am salvaging the fork. Does anyone know how to remove the fork from the steel tube? It does not want to come out. The nut at the bottom has been removed.
Thanks,
Shawn
