Re: [HOsteam] Removing Pins from drivers on Tyco wheels

Thanks for the suggestions.  Last night I jambed  the end of an xacto knife blade between the nut and the plastic of the driver.  I held it in place by pressing the end of the handle on the work surface - this created enough pressure to keep the nut from turning. I like the idea of using some epoxy or other glue upon reassembly

 

Thanks again!

I do not have any Tyco steam in my fleet, but what I have usually seen is that the nut is on the inside of the driver. Jabbing with an x-acto or small screwdriver from the back side will be just fine. For putting it back together, I would suggest a 2 part epoxy, keeping the bolt in the nut to have a good reference to keep things straight. When the epoxy sets, unscrew the bolt and put it in from the outside, through the side rods.

Hope This Helps,

Matthew

Perhaps you need to 'glue' the outer edge of the nut to the wheel?

How about tooth-pick applied...... 'breakable' Lock-Tite, ordinary super-glue, or 5-minute epoxy ????

Hi

I have a set of drivers from a tyco 0-8-0 that I need to remove the drive arms from.  On two sets of drivers, the nut the the bolt  screws into are spinning when I turn the bolt.  Any ideas of how to stabilize the nut so I can remove the bolt? I thought of jambing an xacto knife blade between the nut and the plastic on the wheel but don't want to damage the wheel.

 

Any thoughts are appreciated!
