Default Steering Spindle Ball Joint press tool

The following tool is used to press the steering ball joint from the steering spindle on 123's and 126's.

The picture on the ebay web site demonstrates how it is used

Konik Tools E-bay Store

I contacted the seller and asked if it was also suitable for a 116 spindle but he did not know and would not commit himself.

My press is probably not of sufficient height to allow this tool to be used so I did not follow it up but does anyone know if there is a significent difference between a 126 and a 116 steering spindle that would prevent this tool being used.

Something funny happened as last week I purchased some tools from the guy who owns that site but then he called himself Shermen Tools and was based in California but in the dealings he said he had an alternative site called Konik Tools.

I purchased the tools I wanted and they arrived last night with no problems but when I went onto ebay to give positibve feedback he no longer existed - but now Konik Tools (From Memphis, Tennessee) has appeared as an ebay site.

I figure he was deregistered or something due to trading off the ebay site but his dealings with me have been excellent and previously he had a clear picture of that tool

Anyway still interested in those 116/126 spindle differences if there are any.
