N50 Eccentric Shaft Issues
Thank you all for all the posts previously. It all helped me tremendously in my restorations.
We just purchased a 2002 model recently, where the eccentric shaft was damaged beyond repair. My question is has anyone ever removed the eccentric shaft? The service manual says it is easy to remove after removing the bolt and the little lock screw, however, my experience is not that easy because in the shaft only the bottom part is threaded and the top section is smooth. Does anyone know how to remove them without damaging the threads (the shaft hole is made from aluminum and very ductile) My guess is these shafts are inserted via heating the housing because the tolerances are very low?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
