John Leyzorek :
Dear Mr. Dhillon,
I am greatly enjoying your web-site. Only partly through the history of dismantling of your Listeroid. I should be out working on my own junk.
But I had to tell you some tricks I have used.
If key is a tapered gib-head key, the best way to remove if head is gone would be to drill a hole through the entire length of the key, of a size to allow tapping the hole for a long machine screew ofr bolt. If, for instance, the key is approx. 3/8" square or 10 mm, drill approx 1.4" or 6 mm hole.
Then use oxyacetylene torch to blow through the hole to heat the key red-hot. Key is now thin-walled, will get very hot before the heavy mass of shaft and flywheel does. As it heats, it will try to expand, but will be constrained by the shaft and flywheel. So it will get longer, rather than fatter.
When it cools, it will shrink uniformly in all directions (isotropically), so will end up narrower, and loose.
Tap threads in the hole, 5/16" or 8mm. Attach slide-hammer to screw and pull outkey.
If key is a straight, not tapered key, it will not usually have a gib-head, and after cleaning all rust and dirt off exposed end of shaft, I would use a wheel-puller to pull wheel without first removing key.
If wheel is a tapere
d fit on tapered shaft, like American Wisconsin engines, then a sharp hammer blow on end of shaft is the only practical way to remove wheel. Let me suggest a great web-forum for advice from extremely knowledgeable people on any mechanical question, "www.practicalmachinist.com"
I have been in business building and repairing all types of machinery, welding, making machine parts, for thirty years...no experience on Listers or Listeroids, but I applaud waht you are doing, and would be glad to help if I can.
