Hex key jammed in end of crank shaft
« on: May 26, 2019, 03:24:28 AM »
Hi all,
I've managed to get a hex key (5 or 6mm) jammed into the end of the crank when removing the stator flywheel. I thought i long enough however it turns out it wasn't. I've tried a few methods of getting it out but cannot find anything to get a grip on it. I tried drilling into it with the idea of getting an extractor in, but the metal appears to hard. Looking in the manual, the hole for the flybolt tapers off and it seems that is where the hex key is wedged. Any idea on how I can get myself out of this mess?
