    The dog teeth definitely broke off that hub. . The bull gear normally comes out as an assembly. The assembly comes out by first removing the Hi/Lo shifter pinion (that whole pinion pulls out with the knob attached. The pinion is what holds the bull gear assembly in there.

    Of course the bull gear assembly may be rusted in there, but make sure you have the Hi/Lo shifter out first.

    Perhaps the dog teeth broke off by beating out the drawbar? If you had to really wack the drawbar out from the spindle end, I could see that possibly breaking the dog teeth off, if that's where the drawbar was seized.

    That's a really great offer from Barry at H&W. I'd take him up on it. He could probably explain things really well, and could disassemble these machines in his sleep.

    I will definitely take Barry up on his offer. I will try and call on monday(next off day). I followed his video step by step. The hi-low came out super easy and has been out from the beginning. I am definitely a perfectionist. I have lubed everything for weeks at a time to avoid breaking anything. This was the first part I broke besides a taper pin on the powerfeed, which I had to drill out. Since then the lip to the bearing sleeve has come off in places. This area has been soaking with either transmission fluid, pb blaster, evaporust, and a krud kutter rust product for over a week. The splined gear hub and the spindle are stuck together. They move up and down with eachother. Thanks for the help.

    Not sure if Monday the 18th is a Holiday for H & W or not. Looks like you are moving right along with this project, and doing it correctly.

    I forgot all about the holiday. Good to know you will be there. I plan on sending Barry a video before I call, so he can see where I'm at. Hopefully it will make it easier to understand when I call.

    I'm trying, this part of the mill has been the toughest part yet. I had to work away from home most of last year, so I figured I better get with it while I'm still able to be home.
