I am taking the chain case off this zrt and have run into something I dont know about. The bottom gear does not seam to want to losen. I did not have an allen wrench big enough to fit it so I went and welded up a tool using a bolt head and a old wrench as the handle.. well no way was it going to losen that gear.. I ended up snapping the wrench/handle !!!! lol. I had a lot of preasure on it too... I have never taken one of these apart b4 and I am almost 100% sure I am doing it correctly... as I see no other way of doing it. Is there a trick to it? I am going to go purchase the correct allen wrench to fit in there tomorrow so maybe that will do it. It is not a backwards thread is it? Any help would be very nice.

Thanx

That is the reverse drive adapter that has the allen wrench in it.
I always loctite them when I put them in.
I was up north and broke a chain and needed to take it apart with no tools.
I had a Craftsman chisel in the tool box. It is a 1/2 hex on the end of it.
I took and cut about 2 inches off the end of the chisel with a hack saw.
Stick one end in the adapter and took a 1/2 inch box end wrench on the other end,worked slick as hell and still use it 3 years later.

It is a standard thread, not left hand

Thank you. I tried using a 1/2 inch bolt.. I welded up a handle usign a old 3/8 wrench on the other end of it but I ended up snapping the wrench!! lol. Your idea sounds like it might work. I want to make a tool for this so I might do what you mentioned and maybe weld up a good solid handle on it. Thanx allot. :luxhello:

The motor is still in the sled so heating would be an "If all else fails" option. I did the same thing that SNOW800 mentioned and it worked like a charm. I did go to 3 or 4 parts stores looking for a 1/2 inch allen wrench but no one had any.. imagine that !! I wonder if Sears would? I guess I could get it off snapon when they stop into work, but why spend the cash I guess when what SNOW800 said worked like a charm !! It was really damn tight though !! Now off to finnish removing case.. lets see how good those bearings are !!
