Pokey,
Oops, you are correct. My bad. I misread the post and thought it was the wedge/plug that was still stuck.

OK, Roadbuzz, try it this way. Take the bolt all the way out. Remove the fork. (You could leave it in; I just prefer not to do any tapping on things with the bearings still in place.) Screw the bolt in from the bottom of the fork to pull the wedge/plug out. THEN squirt in some LW and let it soak a while. Support and pad the fork crown somehow (not the race). THEN try tapping the quill from the bottom with a wooden dowel. Do it gently. Tap some. Squirt some more LW. Soak. Tap some more.

What do you think, Pokey?
Regards,
Raymond
