S111g main shaft pipe repair

My daughters s111 has TBE. I thought the main shaft (inner) was bent but it is not. The main shaft pipe seems a little bent though, and I haven't figured out how to get it off. The 111 is a little different than the 107. The main shaft pipe has a gear attached to it and does not have the lower rotor coupling.

It is separate

The 107 is one piece w/o the bottom gear attached.

Here's a pic of the 111

Does anyone have a guess as to how I would get the main shaft pipe out for straightening or replacement?

Well, first, lubricating has gotten rid of TBE for a number of us, if you remember the "Fixed Yellow's TBE" post.

 

Then, well, lets see how bernie says... he's done that before.

Alright, so it's definately bent. lol

 

The bottom one's usually not the bent one, but I'm guessing to get it off, you have to do a lot more to get it off than the top one. I think what you need to do is take off the upper shaft, or at least the top part of it, then remove the gear for the inner one, and slide it off. But, being that this is the 102/111/108 innerds, it might be a little more complicated.

 

As for bending, you would probably have to take it off-not much to grab on these. GENTLY try to unbend it, but very gently-this type of metal in the tubing shape that this is in has a tendance to kink or worse, snap.
