Right Brake Pedal Removal gear puller

Postby fiddler » Fri Jul 31, 2020 6:54 pm

Has anybody found a gear puller to use on the right brake pedal to remove it? The teeth need to be about twice as long on my gear puller to get around the slanty flange holding the seat. I need to get the shaft out so I can install some grease zirks so as to keep this thing from seizing again. It is now moving grittily with JB and a couple of weeks, but I want to get it smooth. I am tempted to try drilling a deep enough hole in the shaft to get the tap in far enough for a grease zirk. But after drilling out the keeper bolt I find that the shaft is much tougher than the seat.....

Most Grease fittings are 1/8” pipe thread. Don’t need to be threaded that deep. But you do need a thru hole to the shaft

Hi,
You can lube the pedal pivots with an oil can, it's easier than taking it apart.

1/8" pipe thread zerks are the large size ones. You want zerks with 1/4" 28 threads, they're very common and readily available.

That sounds backward to me.

Another option is to skip the tapping operation and use a drive fitting.

Sounds backward but not

1/8" pipe= .400"
1/4-28 = .250"

1/8” pipe is tapered pipe thread
1/4-28 is straight machine thread

You only need a few threads for the pipe to tighten. That is why I suggested it.

I agree, Jim, the drive in fittings would be the easiest to install. John, one problem with the tapered pipe thread is that you have to bury the tap to about 3/4 it's depth to have a threaded hole the zirk fitting will screw into. You can't do that if the shaft is still in the hole.
