Wow, very good information, makes me almost want to get one. Did anyone notice the post was from 2013? I wonder if she's still checking the board for an answer?

Oups sorry , my fault !  I saw the post  in " unread posts since last visit. "   I don't know why ....

Yes very informative, I'll know where to go to service one if the need arises. Just thought it was kinda funny. Would be great if she responded.

HA! That's quite ironic, I didn't notice the original post either.  Huh? I was just responding to the latest one or two.  Smiley

I have a current question on assembly (actually dis-assembly) of my 306. I can't get the bushing and transfer gear out of the neck. Further, I'm not sure if it comes out into the gear box or up through the neck. I don't want to force it, but can I use light pressure to dislodge it? I've attached pics.

What? Me worry?

Now I can't remember. Mines in another place. I liked mine so much I wore it out, bought another one, same era but with less wear.
I do remember having the same trouble when servicing. Did you take out the keyway pin yet? My best recollective guess is that once you pull that pin (don't lose it!), it comes outta the top a the gear box.
BTW, welcome Pejay!

I removed the pin (keeping it safe) but bushing and gear didn't slip out as I would expect. WD40 hasn't loosened it yet. Guess I could try tapping around the neck to loosen the bushing.

The pinion gear and bushing will come out the top. Try a small implement or nail through the hole to wiggle the bushing. You can use a larger nail head first down inside the pinion gear and pull with some pliers. Let the nail head catch the other end of the pinion gear.

Like in Keith’s earlier great photos —

Make sure that in addition to removing the tiny key —you also remove the bail trip piece.

It holds the pinion bushing in place, and like Keith sez —it just comes out from the top — not the inside towards the case.

If it is fused or stuck — just tap the pinion from the inside out — using a piece of wood to support the frame, as well as a piece of wood to tap with the hammer against the pinion.

Also, if fused — a few drops of penetrating oil such as Kroil for 30 minutes should free it up.

Best,

Fred

This is referring to post from last year on this thread, but...

Fred, what is that gizmo you're using to look at the manuals?

That is just a vision enhancer, Joe —

Great for small parts, tiny directions, schematics, etc.

They are used for folks with low vision issues for reading, connecting to a computer, or scanning to a printer.

It will enlarge things from 3 to 26 times — and has eight modes for color, B&W, W&B, green, yellow, etc.

Below is an example of a Squidder dog spring at 26 magnification.

Pretty handy.

Best,

Fred

Okay guys another question. Is there supposed to be a filter or wad of something inside the stem on the main gear where the handle screws into? I dislodged "stuff" when cleaning the small opening ( oil port?) on the stem.
Thanks
