I am trying to replace the bent tail shaft, but is having difficulty in detaching the bent one from the tail pulley. There is a very tiny shaft (the diameter is only 0.5mm) that secures the shaft to the pulley, and I need to take it out. How can it be done?

The roll-pin is quite a bit more than 0.5mm in diameter. It is more like 1.5mm.

If you have a drill press it's a piece of cake. Just chuck up a small brad nail or a 1/16" drill bit (shaft side down). Then you can press the roll-pin out of the pulley/shaft. This is easiest to do if you have some V-shaped stock to hold the shaft, or you can hold the shaft against a piece of wood with a hole drilled beneath where the pin will press out.

For those without a drill press or arbor press, this job involves a hammer. It's quite a bit more difficult, but it is possible. I use an old broken shaft of a 1/16" drill bit that came with one of those quick-change hex shafts. Something like this or a narrow punch will work. The hardest part is holding the pulley/shaft while also holding the punch and hammering out the roll pin. A vice helps unless you have three hands.

I have a 1/16 drill bit and a drill. So you want me to install the other end of the drill bit on the drill and then drill it down?

No. Press it down. No drilling involved.

Use the drill press as an arbor press, not as a drill, with the drill being punch to remove the pin. This usually works pretty well.

Hmmm. The new shaft I bought had a pulley on it already. No need to remove the old one.

Rudy,
I got it in the mail today, it's done and packed up. I'm going to see if I can sneak out to the PO, if not today it will go out tomorrow. Don't worry about the postage cost.

Looking at the replacement costs across Europe it is cheaper to buy the shaft with the gear on than just the shaft on its own. Is that the case where you are?

It's $5 more for the combo here.
