Hey all been a stent since I have posted. I have two problems. I am restoring a 16 and I can't seem to figure out how to get the yolk off the hydro unit itself. I already have got the set screw out it just won't come off! Frustrating....

Anyways my other issue is I have it torn to the frame but can't get the hydro handle out of the bushings in the frame.

Any ideas or things to try would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advanced jake

What we did to my MF 14 to get the yolk off the hydro, was first coat it with PB-Blaster, then took a tire iron with a wide flat end and put the flat end against the yolk on the trans. side, rested the handle against the trans. and hit the end of the handle with a hammer. We also used the tire iron to pry against the yolk. I'm not sure that this method for removing the yolk would work in all situations and you have to be carful to not damage the trans. housing.

To remove the hydro handle, I coated the bushings with PB-Blaster, then used a air hammer to drive the shaft out of one bushing so that the shaft would drop out of the frame. The air hammer did mess up the end of the shaft a bit, but not in a way that will hurt the operation of the shaft, and it was nice to get it off.

Hope this helps.

Our air hammer is actually a air chisel. It has a pin that is like a punch, that works great for driving things.
