Subject: Dis-assembly of the worm gear

I am trying to remove the worm gear shaft in order to get a sprocket keyed onto it for an auto pilot. I am having a hard time disassembling the worm gear however. Specifically the two 'arms' won't come apart which I believe is the way the worm gear would disassemble. I am attempting to follow these instructions: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kibele/3021117982/in/set-72157608829826444/

If anyone has any advice, ie, just use more force, please let me know. This shouldn't be this difficult but it-just-wont-budge[tm].

[> worm gear dis Assembly -- Brian, - Thursday - 05/29/14 - 9:27pm

I have a below decks auto pilot. It works great. Mine has a split gear on the wheel shaft under the helm seat. I replaced the control unit and the computer (Ray Marine) in 2011, but kept the drive motor. The computer learns while you sail. Really holds a course well.
