Okay what's the secret to getting the demountable ear off of the band. I don't want to pry and mess anything up. It is a '27 transmission. I can see I have another job to add to my least favorite things to do
There is an indent in the ear (center), and there is a square hole in the band (that you can't see). Insert a flat screwdriver between the ear and the band at that point and pry up. It usually takes very little effort.
it is not coming apart that easy. It looks easy, but there are 3 of us trying with no cooperation
Take a screwdriver and make a tool, or buy a paint can opener with the bent tip on the end. You need to lift the ear off the end of the band while sliding it away from the end at the same time. This is a removable ear type, right? ws
