I had to replace the strike wheel lever. I have inserted a replacement lever in the arbor but don't know how to secure it so it doesn't rotate in the arbor. Here is a photo of the arbor and strike lever
I have yet to replace one of these, so I'm also curious about the whole shebang to extract one that's broken, when making a full replacement. Are these levers, etc., typically slightly turned down in OD at the end to fit the holes? Tapered a bit? Do you spot the previous peen with a center punch while holding in some sort of notched V-block, drill and push/pull to get them out? Never seen one done. If there is a how-to, looks like I missed it ;-(
TIA if you can point me in a direction that vaults over our hall of shame?
They will usually push out with a punch from the unpeened side. On rare occasions you might need to drill them out.
As Willie outlined, you push the new lever through the hole so it protrudes on the other side by an inch or so. Then flatten that end a bit with a hammer. Now when you push it back into the arbor, it will be too big to go in the hole. So you take your hammer and tap it in. Or pound it in if you like that term better If you flattened it enough, it will be very tight and will stay in place.
