A10 speedo gear on lay shaft
« on: 22.03. 2015 15:30 »
Hi Guys
I am trying to remove the speedo drive from the lay shaft of a A10 gearbox. Anyone ever done this? I drilled out the pin. No dice. I heated the lay shaft. No dice. Any one ever do this successfully. Thanks Jeff

I have done several, Jeff.
I hold the gear between aluminium angles in the vice and work the shaft free.

 I was looking at one (two) the other day, and decided that as the shaft is hollow, it could be possible to slide in a length of bar and drift it out? Being careful not to burr the end though
