Differential planet gear shaft pin

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to remove the pin that secures the planet gear shaft into the differential carrier, of a TR4 Girling axle. It looks like the pin/carrier has been peened over at one end to secure the pin.

I can move the pin a back a forth a few millimeters but it doesn't want to move any further. Before I get the big hammer out, I want to check if the pin can be knocked out from either side of the diff carrier or whether it will only come out one way.

Is there a technique to get this pin out?

It punches out using suitable steel drift from crown wheel bolt side.  3/16” diameter I think.  Once out the planet gear shaft slides out. Re peen the locking cross pin in place after rebuild with blunt cold chisel
