Hi

the shaft of my mb slot pinion puller has just sheared off. Couple of questions:

1) I cannot remove the stub that is left in the puller. I have taken out the grub screw but the stub won't budge. Any tips?

2) need to replace the shaft - is there a replacement part that will fit?

thanks

Matt

Hi Matt,
Option 1.
Will a magnett pull it out, try a stack of around three magnetts.
Option 2.
You may have to drill it out. this wont be easy as its hardened steel.
Option 3.
You can also try drilling a very fine hole from th oposite end. once you reach the pin, it should just push out. make sure the new hole is smaller than the existing pin. as when you fit the replacement, it will fall straight through.

Good Luck.

Rob

thanks guys - have tried the magnet, but will try multiple magnets. In terms of drilling - think my masonary drills are all a tad bigger than the 2mm shaft and I don't fancy hand drilling it so a gigantic stack of magnets will need to do!

Try heating it up by putting it in boling water for a couple of minutes, hopefully the outer will expand more than the pin and then you should be able to tap the pin out.
