Does it harm the motor when u leverage with 2 big screwdrivers the pinion from the motor? the loctite went thru the screws so it came glued.
Anyone destroyed motor thru this?
I am now scared lol


I have done this every time like that and had no issues yet but i am scared to my new motor

Did you try heating the grub screw w/ a torch or your soldering iron 1st? I would recommend trying that before you start prying on that pinion. The 1 time I had to remove a pinion like that due to a broken wrench tip in the grub screw it actually bend the motor shaft & ruined the motor

yes ofc. its a 8mm shaft. i don't think this will be an issue.. ;) maybe i am just overthinking.
i am no beginner...just overthinking sometimes :D i always use heat when applied screws with loctite. the set screw wasnt the problem, as i said the loctite glued the pinion on the shaft :D

I've used tools to pry pinions off before and the only thing I've damaged is motor mount plates lol. I've heard of someone snapping a shaft doing it, but he was the only person I saw who had such an experience.

Yea and when I started in the hobby I was getting 5mm shaft motors but now it's all 8mm whenever I buy a new motor. The bigger pinions seem to stay on a lot better too! :ROFLMAO:

Heat pinion outside motor shaft, custom pry bar, with pinion in vice.

Otherwise a mini two jaw bearing puller works.

I searched hard and never found anything decent, not even for 1/8. Which one do you use? has it been working well for you? I've had to pry off so many pinions in my time. I'm terrified every time I do it but it must be done :eek: :ROFLMAO:
