    Heat it up w/ a propane torch, don't melt the aluminum case tho!!! Propane will melt aluminum.

    Once you get it good and hot quench w/ WD-40... Give it a try, repeat as necessary. Le'me no how you make out!

    You need an impact screwdriver to knock it loose. You can pick one up at Sears.

    Refrain from using too much heat, as you'll melt the oil seal behind the gear.

    Descent hardware stores sell them(usually in packets of 4) as seperate items,for ppl that loose or break their original.

    thanks for the info but my impact wrench is like the one used for car hub nuts. is there an attachment that will work with that?

    Sorry man,dunno.
    Possibly someone will chime-in with the correct answer,but even if it comes to it the other type of impact driver is cheap enough to be bought as a seperate toolbox item.......darn invaluable.

    Yes.

    All it'll take is one or two whacks with a hammer and the screw will break free.

    If you've got a 1/4 socket, most screwdriver tips will fit it... Just an idea.

    AG, thanks for jumping in there. Didn't know there was a seal!

    hey guys, i got it out by using a socket that fit the hex handle of a screw driver and used the impact wrench i already had. But anyways thanks for the help!

    use your clutch removal tool. put the screw in the other way from how it is shipped. Screw puller (small side)into the gear and tighten screw to pull it.
