Whilst not related to the original problem, how do you remove the metal bit in the centre of these cogs? Just interested in trying to print a replacement...

That'd be great, thanks Chas.  How do you put the centre back in, just use a hammer

If your talking about the clutch bearing in the centre then this needs to be pressed in If your talking about the metal sleeve which the bearing presses into then I think that is moulded to the plastic

Hi Dan I have just taken out the sleave from the Large cog and as you will see Area51 has said the cog was moulded with the sleave in place and I do not think it could be taken out without breaking the drive cog take a look at the photos . 2-IMG_0231 by CHAS SINCLAIR C5 RESTORER, on Flickr 1-IMG_0229 by CHAS SINCLAIR C5 RESTORER, on Flickr

Ah okay, thanks Area51. It's not as easy as I thought

Thanks for the pictures Chas, yeah I think we'll have to leave this cog, I can't see any way to print a replacement if the metal bit was originally moulded straight into it
