  • Removing a 1.5 mm pinion

    I’ve installed many of these, and my trusty Slot.it pinion press / Puller does the job without fail.
    Until now, never had to pull a 1.5 mm pinion off of a predator motor. The Slot it pin pusher on the extractor is too thick to go through the pinion.
    I installed an 8 tooth pinion and want to switch to a 9 tooth.
    any thoughts or suggestions?
    thanks

    I had a thought after I posted this, what about my HO scale pinion puller? Boom, that was the trick, off in a jiffy!!
    Now if you have that problem, there is a solution.

      Mike, Slot-it makes/sells a 1.5mm pin that fits their puller/press...........undo the set screw that holds in the 2mm pin, and replace with the 1.5mm.

      While you have a 1.5mm puller, for those that do not, Slot-it/Slotting plus/MRSlotcar, all make them.

    thanks for that info, good to know. I still look for one for future jobs.

      I had an old FF motor that was bad, so I cut the shaft off. I ground the shaft tip down a little so it would easily fit in the pinion. I could then use it in the Slot.it puller/press, until I could order the proper tool.
