Kickstart pinion and ratchet T140E
I've made earlier posts on changing the kickstart quadrant and got good advice. I initially thought that the ratchet and pinion were ok, but have found one broken tooth and one half broken tooth on the pinion so decided to replace that and the pinion. I got the retaining nut off ok, but the pinion seems stuck on the lay shaft. I did try some judicious banging with a hammer (not much). Is there a technique to this. My fear is that the pinion has worn the lay shaft. Is there a good way to get the ratchet and pinion off?
Any advice greatly appreciated. It's a 1980 Bonnie T140E. When I fix this, I've only (pray to god) one more thing to sort - carburretion.
