Re: Removing / replacing the oil cups on a 10K gearbox?

Thank you all for the suggestions! The drywall screw with a slide-hammer looks like a great place to start.

Knowing how things go over here, I'll be able to try it out in about a week :D.

Hi There,

The oilers on the top of the Quick Change Gear Box (QCGB)  are press fit
into the casting.  There are 3 types of Gits oilers that could be used.

The one of the far left is generally the ones found on later gear boxes.  As one cans
see, there is a bead around the middle to limit how far the oiler can be driven in. 
Gits Part No: 00502.

The middle one has the body flared out to form the cup part of the oiler and it forms
a shoulder of sorts to limit insertion.  Gits Part No: 00330

The one on the far right is machined and has a distinct square shoulder. 
Gits Part No: 00302

I use a drywall screw brazed to the end of a bolt.  I then use a hollow steel sleeve
to slide up the bolt to impact against the underside of the bolt head to pull the oiler
out (like a dent puller).

Good Luck!
