Removing Handle on a Fry 117 #749928 06/04/2020 2:15 PM
by BrianH
I need to remove the handle on my Fry 117 to install the access door and straighten the bent handle. I removed the "thumb screw" at the end of the pump shaft last night but it broke and left the threaded section still inside the pump shaft. Here's my question - do the threads only hold the thumb screw in place, or do those threads also thread through the base of the handle? I intend to drill out the remainder of the thumb screw, but I'm trying to determine if I can just use a gear puller to pull the handle off the pump shaft or if I need to drill those threads out first.

Got the handle off yesterday. Thanks for the tips. I drilled out the remainder of the bolt a little bit to create a depression for the bolt on my gear puller. I tightened up the gear puller and then tapped on the base of the handle to vibrate the handle while the puller applied pressure to the handle. That worked great for slowly working the handle off the pump shaft. Straightened out the bent handle and reinstalled.
