Just pulled off the back Dion suspension to tidy it up (needs a complete repaint).
But pulling the bearings - what a mission.
Anyway - struggling without the right tool, so quickly made up a CAD of the tool to remove the retaining ring in a later GTV6.

If people are interested I can try and construct one for the Alfetta and early GTV6 - it was the six pronged similar but round).
It is a dwf file which can be made at many online machining outfits (I use CNC Manufacturing, Prototyping, Fast Quotes & Free CAD | eMachineShop).
The file is renamed to .txt suffix as it would not let me upload a dxf file directly.
I have put a socket square in the middle so it can use with standard driver.
It is 30mm thick - and can just be flipped if one side becomes burred.

Hope this helps - Tim

Great Job. We need more people like you. Wish i was as savvy as you in CAD. I have so many things i want to build! AND these online companies now.... they are great. you just send the drawing and puff..... the parts are made to order.

For the thicker castellated nut you can use a socket for a truck axle, readily available. There’s a picture here.

here and post 67 for bearing change.

The thin nut with the six sides internally, most just cut that out and replace it with the thicker castellated one.
