ok is there some secret to getting out the roll pin on the cross feed clutch. i have tried damn near everything. broken several drills. bent several drifts and still have done little to remove the roll pin. Stopped today as frustration is setting in. thought of heating it a bit, but ........
Getting back to getting it apart. There is a 5/16" shaft that runs all the way from end to end in the ID of the main shaft. That works with the anti-lock mechanism that prevents the half nuts from being engaged while the power feed is being used. Once you get it out, locate that roll pin in the nut. Take a small pin punch, guessing a 3/32" punch. Drive this pin into the ID of the shaft. It should be short enough to fall into the ID of the shaft. Once that is done, back off the nut. It's right hand threads. May require Channel Locks or small pipe wrench to back off that nut. Lather you can use a file and remove all of the buger marks made from wrench.
Can you post some pictures of the clutch shaft assy and the nut on the end? Maybe it's a little different from mine?
I hope this helps. Ken
