seperating inner shaft from birf?

Hey all,

I've got a question for ya. I have some spare shafts that are busted in one form or another. I've got a long and a short side with busted birfs and I've got a long side with the splines on the inner shaft busted.

How do I go about getting the inner shaft out of the birfs without destroying everything? My plan is to get the busted inner out and reuse the birf if possible. Also to get the busted birfs off the other shafts to reuse the inner shafts.

thanks,

alright. I was hoping there was another trick to it. I tried that on one of them and it didn't want to go at all. I guess I'll just have to keep slamming it until it goes.

Re: seperating inner shaft from birf?

Ok, I've managed to get the shafts out of the busted birfs. The good birf doesn't want to come off though. The lock ring is holding that sucker on there.

One of them the inner piece was so busted up it came out in pieces. The other one popped right out using the pipe method.

I've tried putting my hi-lift handle resting on my anvil portion of the vise. Then I have been slamming the shaft as hard as I can in the pipe and it doesn't want to get past the lockring. How many hits does it typically take to seperate one if the birf is still good?
