How To Remove Roll Pins Easily
I learned a trick for removing spring type roll pins today. I was working on the throttle of Jeff's (non mechanic neighbor) 444 today and needed to get the lower roll pin in this picture out to replace the friction disk.
In addition to it being hard to get too, there appeared to be some weld gobbed around the pin, which I had to cut off with the Dremel. I tried to drive it out with a punch, but couldn't move it due to not being able to backup the shaft and keep it from sprining. I tried drilling it, but all I accomplished was dulling my drill bit. After thinking a little bit I remembered Jeff mentioning he was wondering about using an air chisel. I grabbed my air chisel and ground the punch bit that came with it down to the size of the roll pin, and the pin popped out almost as soon as I pulled the trigger. I think I will get some extra punches to grind down to pin sizes as I need them.
