Actually there are threads in the ears. After you remove the three torx bolts, the idea was to screw one in each ear to jack the input shaft out of the engine case hole. The ears turned out to be too weak. So then Triumph whent to using a slap wrench to pull the shaft out. If the ears break off just toss them and next time use the slap wrench method. Most owners now have new manuals so the manual shows the new pulling method.

Wow, again -- I actually understand, thanks to your wonderful explanations.

Thank you !!! :notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:

@Idaho Red Rocket 3 one need only look at the net for this one.

It is similar to a hammer dent puller, or any other puller where one end is attached the item being moved, and the shaft has a stop at the other end with a weight that is slammed toward the back to apply the force to back out the item.

A slap wrench instead of having a fixed weight on a shaft, has a hardened end that can withstand the force of a hammer "slapping" it to jar loose, in this case, the input shaft. Available at McMaster-Carr and other fine suppliers.

Can this "slap wrench" also be used to slap the monkey? :eek:
