How to get gear and taper pin off on Stover CT-2

How do you go about removing a gear that has been welded on to the crank. This thing is BIG TIME welded on. They slopped a bunch of chicken crap on both sides of the gear and you can't even find the original shaft.

Could you torch it most of it off and have an engine shop turn it round again?

Are cranks easy to come by and relatively inexpensive? Would you be better off to cut the crank to get the flywheel off and buy a new crank?

These are the only options I can come up with, but their have to be more. I can't be the first guy to confront this problem!


Is there a way to get rusted in taper pins out? It can't be punched or pryed out. Can you heat it? Will that cause problems with the flywheel?

Dad got all mad and said he is just going to leave the flywheels on and prep it for paint. I am not in love with the idea, but I am not the lead man on the project.

He wants to make the engine run before going nuts trying to salvage the crank. I'm guessing a crank could be had for that engine pretty easily anyhow.

BTW, it turns out it is a throttle governed engine. I don't know if that is better or worse, but at least we are not missing as many parts as we thought!

Well, there's always a way to save this old stuff if your pockets are deep enough.

A good machine shop that has a CNC horizontal mill would be a good place to start asking questions about removing the gear. They should be able to use circular interpolation ( computer guides milling cutter in a circular path ) to cut away the weld.
I don't think a large lathe is going to be an option with the flywheels still mounted and in the way.

If you are going to talk to a shop, do it BEFORE you start torching away at the gear. Sometimes torching can leave metal harder than hell . Ask them if you can save them time by torching first.

As to the taper pin, I may be able to give better advice if I knew where it was located . I can offer that they are case hardened and can be drilled after you get past the hard outer skin.
