Default Driveshaft pin removal

Any tips on removing the pins other than spending £100 on a hiddy pin tool :-/
Cheers

Put it in a vice, knock it with a hammer until one side is flat. Get a nail and tap it through a bit further. Then tap the new pin through. I use a ball cup to hold the new pin steady. But anything will do as long as its a similar diameter to the pin.

This is by far the best tool for replacing drive pins. Ryan does a 2.5mm and 3mm version.

I changed a set of pins on a spare set of Yokomo rear shafts in around 8-10 minutes with this tool

Think you will find it made from hex bar and machined, not a big nut with a hole drilled in it lol

I'd thought about firing up the lathe to thread it all one direction as the coupling nuts are threaded from both ends to accommodate for threading in both ends with normal bolts, but its unnecessary as once the bottom bolt is needed there is loads of room to press with the other.

If there is interest i can throw up a quick guide to show how to make one at home with basic tools any home gamer should have kicking about.
