Amphi Tool

John,

I remember getting these same instructions from Huge the first time I
replaced the drive shafts It took me about 10 minutes to figure out that I
didn't own a vice big enough to securely hold the shaft while I drove the
pivot arm off. Even it I went out and bought one, I still wouldn't have a
work table big and heavy enough to hold the assembly while I hammered away.
I ended up using three cinder blocks. By stacking them carefully one can
drop the drive shaft down through the middle and the pivot arm will rest
firmly on the top cider block. Driving the drive shaft out was easy. I've
use this method four times now. Also, don't forget to spin on a big nut on
the drive shaft to protect its threads.
