Could probably use a center punch to flair the keyhold to the center of the hole and then tap new wrench into allen head hole. I would try heating the point where the threads are entered by the bolt. The mount is probably part of the wheel mount on the forks. Heat it enough to make it expand and contract, But not enough to melt and discolor the metal. It is a tedious job. Aluminum alloy expands a lot with small does of heat. It will make the threads expand arond the bolt. try some good penetrating fluid, like PBS or WD-40, etc. Just be careful with the flame. I would keep a fire extinguisure handy. If you are not comfortable with this, then I would suggest a good bike shop. It would be pricey but a safe bet to have the job done. It takes a lot of patience. I have never found one of those with left hand threads. Left hand threads are usually used in a situation where here is a chance of a rotating member turning the bolts out in the directon of the rotation. There is nothing rotating around the fastners on the calipers. I have removed bolts like that before by welding a new bolt inside the key hole, but I have alot of experince at that and know how to sheild all surrounding parts from damage from the welding process. The combination of the high heat and the new bolt usually make the bolt turn out with no problem. The expansion ratial is enormous at the high heat levels.

there will be an expansion tank that hold/refill the coolant , look for plastic tank could be round , square beside rad , with coolant hoses to it , make sure engine cold when removing cap, will need to drain old coolant before refilling with new , worth checking the coolant strenght before draining as may still be ok

Removing chuck


You don't say which drill you have, but this is one method.


Remove the left handed screw from inside the chuck, put the drill into low gear then lay the machine on it's left side, fit a suitable spanner on to the slot behind the chuck and arrange it so that the spanner is against the work surface. Put the chuck key into the chuck and give it a hard blow so you knock it in an anti clockwise direction. If it is a keyless chuck or you don't have a key try holding the short end of a large allen key in the chuck and knock the long end in a anticlockwise direction. This will work even if you don't have a spanner to fit behind the chuck but you might have to hit it harder. If you have a vise after removing the screw hold the chuck in a vice and fit the spanner behind the chuck and turn it anti clockwise.

How do I remove a keyless chuck from my Sears drill.


The chuck is screwed on with a normal thread, the screw in the centre (already removed) is left hand thread. Holding the drill with the open end of the chuck facing you, it should unscrew anti clockwise. It might take an impact to start it off. I normally put the gearbox to slow, set the cluth to drill and then holding the drill firmly, hit the allen key against the edge of my workbench. Bring the drill down like a hammer blow so the allen key hits the bench (which should be on your left). I find this more effective than holding the drill on the bench and hititng the allen key with a hammer as it allows for less drill movement at the point of impact.

Drill chuck swap


1. Turn the screw clockwise to take it out.
2. Then you needs 3/8 allen key & insert the short side of the allen key & tighten the chuck.
3. hold the drill at the edge of the table & wack the allen key
counter clockwise & do it again as needed.
4. dewalt keyless chuck will fit but you might add a washer to insure the chuck is not rubbing the clutch collar.
5. putting it back together the other way.

Chuck replacement


Hi Paul with the screw out you will have to lock the short end off a sturdy allen key in the jaws off the chuck then sellect first gear on the drill then with a hammer hit the long side off the allen key so that the chuck unscrews normal thread (anti clockwise) the shock off the hit will free the chuck.
Hope this helps.
Sean.
