    I was fortunate with a pair of vice grips one time, the new ones have little splines on them so you could drill it out and just go 1 bit lower.

      A good pair of vise grips held in a good vise, use a punch next to pin and drive hub off of pin

        I drill a 1/8" hole on the outiside of the clutch cone where the pin is and then use a small pin punch to punch it out.

          I do it just like Mechanick. Measure, mark, drill, and punch it out of there.. only has to be done once and all future repairs are a snap.

            vise grips and heat up out side works most times ...... if not drill and punch

              WD-40,visegrips,elbow grease,gratuitous swearing= works everytime. dont forget the swearing,this is VITAL for this operation,as with most other pinsetter related operations.
              never thought of drilling an access hole tho, thanx for the idea guys.
              wish i had the same access to that infallible source of expertise on lane conditions that bowlers seem to have....

                I have had luck using a die from a tap and die set. As the die cuts threads on the pin it bottoms out and pulls the pin from the drive disk.

                  Sorry to dis agree because most times the pin has worn to 3/4 of it origel size

                    Really....I did not know there was a right or wrong answer. I thought this is a forum to share your experience with others, so it may help solve problems we all face. While it does not work 100% of the time, it does work.

                        That was a good suggestion, and you are right on point-this forum is open to different experiences. Thanks for posting, and welcome to the site.
