Topic tags/keywords: delta radial arm saw delta ras radial arm saw motor motor removal ras motor yoke question

I’m restoring an older (60s or 70s) Delta 12” radial arm saw but can’t figure out how to remove the motor from the yoke assembly.

The motor is the older style motor

And the parts I’m trying to figure out are called the trunnion pins (#137 and #148)

Sorry, I don’t have any actual pictures of the part at the moment but will shortly.
It looks like the pins are mechanically fastened to the motor but I dont’ know if they are press fit, RH Threaded or LH threaded. The pins have a threaded hole on the visible end and I tried screwing a bolt down there to see if I could get some leverage to rotate them but nothing happened.

Does anyone out there know how to free this motor from the yoke assy? I’ve searched the forums here and of course Google but the only info I could find was how to remove an old Dewalt motor (which I just did not too long ago when I did a restoration on one of those saws).

Thanks,

Is this a duplicate post? I posted (I thought) a lengthy reply to this question, but I can’t find it. Did I dump it somehow?

nope, only reply so far.
However, I did (maybe a few days ago) successfully remove the pins by threading a bolt in and using a gear puller.
it took a couple of days, but the bolt loosener worked it loose

Well, good. I’m sorry my post didn’t make it. I did talk about using a puller and several associated techniques that work well on machinery.
It would be cool to see the restored pictures. If you have the before too, the comparison is often stunning!
Look forward to it!
Merry Christmas!
