Apologies to older club members if this help request appears to be a repetition of early requests - but I have searched the forum and found that this problem which was raised in 2015, does not have a detailed answer - and I tried previous solution suggestions.
But how do I remove this ruddy cog? I have tried hand pulling it, wiggling it, prising it up, unscrewing it. No joy. Do I need to get brutal? Total novice on Ransomes- this is my first attempt. I have reviewed the pdfs on the site on the Manuals and looked at the exploded drawings. There seems to be a pin behind the cog euphemistically called a "grooved pin - Landroll spindle" in the MK5 manual - but no description in the MK4 manual. Could this be stopping it - if so what do people recommend as a step by step procedure? Any special tools required?
All help gratefully received.
