Re: Cleaning steel tanks

... Just make sure it's bare metal and not plated. If you're going to treat the inside of a Seagull fuel tank then your preparations need to include removal of the Ewarts fuel tap and closing the vacant fuel port with a blanking plug. Probably obvious but nonetheless worth mentioning that if you're ...

FV3048 - Overboard!

... poured out of the carb, and I wondered what damage had been done, especially as it was running when it took the dive overboard. Anyway, after plug removal and flushing the magneto with fresh water, squirting lots of WD40 into the engine and the points box, I put it into the boot of the car to examine ...

Flywheel removal revisited

... with no success. Penetrating fluid applied for days. Really don't want to hit it any harder for fear of damage. Any thoughts on heating the flywheel to loosen it? Thanks for any thoughts It's a 74 Forty Plus.

Re: Drive spring carrier removal

Different from the efnr it has a roll pin going through the spring carrier a good set of mole grips on the inside shaft and try rotating with a long screwdriver wedged between the two lugs of the carrier (with heat) and don't let the molies slip

Drive spring carrier removal

Looking for a bit of advice on removing the drive spring carrier on a 170 (I believe same gearbox as EFNR). I’ve tried gentle prying/tapping but I don’t want to bend/damage the prop shaft, as I’m only able to pry from one side at a time. Gave it decent amount of heat. Pulling it off with brute force...

Why didn't you follow Naughty Bits methods of pinion assembly removal? with the sacrificial brass drift. It looks from your pictures that you've destroyed the hardness of the bevel pinion gear, so you'll need a new one. The bevel pinion sleeve with bushes ...

Re: EFNR564FF9 Gearbox Pinion Gear Removal

Having removed the unit I feel I should strip it into its constituent parts.
However, I fear this may destroy it and, well, what’s the point.
I also feel it has probably been damaged in the process, so what is to lose?
Has anyone done this before? Any tips?

Re: EFNR564FF9 Gearbox Pinion Gear Removal

Thank you all for your input.

I have managed to remove the unit and sleeve. I have no idea if it is reusable, but i expect i will need a new one.

I will try and remove the sleeve etc, so thank you for the exploded diagram.

Re: EFNR564FF9 Gearbox Pinion Gear Removal

Sometimes a few sharp smacks on the casing around the pinion bushing with a hard mallet is enough to make driving out the pinion gear & bushing easier - though I haven't found that to be the norm for my motors. I usually end up heating the ali casing enough so that with a few light taps (with a hamm...
