removing a morse taper


Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with removing the drive spur. The spindle should have a hole all the way through it. First, open the cover where the drive belt is. Then look in the center of the top pulley. If you see a hole in the center of the spindle shaft you can drive the spur out with a long punch/bolt and a hammer. Place the punch into the hole so it sits on the end of the spur and give it a tap with the hammer. It should come loose. You may have to give a harder tap if it does not come loose at first. To reinstall the spur, slide it back into the spindle and tap the end of it with a block of wood.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
