Question about Drills
Do I just turn the selection sleeve cc and pull it to release the drill chuck saft?
Open the chuck jaws all the way then look inside the chuck using a flashlight and you will see a screw turn it the wrong way as it is left hand thread

I can't find that model number in their database but I would guess that the chuck that is on it now is for a non-reversing tool and therefore would not have the hole for the chuck retaining screw. As long as the threads are the same I don't see a problem putting it on. Let me know if I can help further. Dave

To take a chuck off of your drill open it up all the way.
Inside there's a screw that you have to take out. It has to be turned clockwise to get it out.
You may need to struggle with it a bit because it's usually really on there tight.
Some folks even use a second drill to loosen it up and that's a really good idea if you have access to one.
Once you get the stubborn little screw out, put an Allen wrench in the spot where the bit would fit in.
If you can't turn it--and you probably won't be able to--then try using a rubber mallet to (gently) hit the arm of the Allen wrench to get it to turn.
Then you should be able to just take it out.
Put the new chuck into the drill.
Add a few twists of the Allen wrench in the opposite direction.
Tighten it up good.
Put the screw back in place and also tighten that up good.
The drill has a lot of vibration and if these aren't tight, it'll cause problems down the road.
Your drill, expertly fitted with your brand new chuck, should now be good to go.

I looked at a old schematic for the 5078 and it appears that it might come off after chuck removed. The chuck is threaded and if you have the 2 speed model, shift it to low and put a bent handle allen wrench into the jaws and chuck on workbench or block of wood with long portion at approx 30 degree angle and strike the handle, you will be hitting it counter clockwise to remove.

I have a DC927 and a DC926 that I removed 1/2" Rohm Supra SK key-less chucks on. This process is pretty simple. Put the drill motor in 1st gear. Put the clutch ring in drill mode and not in driver or hammer. Reverse or open the chuck all the way. Hold the chuck firmly in a vise and give the drill a good POP counter clockwise. The last step can also be done with a pipe wrench by placing the drill on a work bench and turning the chuck counter clockwise. Continue to un-thread until the chuck is removed. The replacement chuck must have the same mounting process and mechanism. Put a few drops of locktite on the threads and thread the replacement chuck back on. Tighten the chuck using the vise or pipe wrench. Place the short end of an allen wrench in the chuck and tighten down on it. Placing the drill on a work bench, strike the allen wrench with a mallet to finish tightening and locking down the chuck. Congratulations, you have just changed out your chuck.

TAKE THE OUTER CHUCK PEICES OFF THE IMPACT!! THERE WILL BE A C-CLIP, WASHER, SPRING AND ONE OR TWO BALL BEARINGS AND THE OUTER HOUSING, IN THAT ORDER! WITH ALL OF THAT OFF, MOUNT THE ANVIL IN A BENCH VISE WITH BRASS JAWS OR BETWEEN TWO PEICES OF WOOD, UPSIDE DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE TRICK IS TO HAVE THE BIT FALL OUT OF THE CHUCK ONCE IT IS LOOSE!!!! NOW WITH IT MOUNTED IN THE VICE AND PRETTY TIGHT, TURN THE TOOL ON UNTILL IT FALLS OUT, IT WORKS GREAT IF HAVE DONE IT ABOUT 75 TIMES!! MOST PEOPLE THINK I'M A WIZARD!! BUT IT'S REALLY EASY. WITH IT MOUNTED SOLID IN THE VISE THE ANVIL HITS SO FAST AND HARD IT VIBRATES THE ANVIL, IF YOU DO NOT REMOVE THE BALL BEARINGS HOLDING THE BIT, YOU WILL BE DOING THIS ALL DAY. SOMETIMES, IN THE CHEAPER BITS IT WILL ROTATE AND GALL UP SO BAD THAT IT WILL NEVER COME OUT, IN THAT CASE YOUR BUYING A NEW ANVIL ASSY. JIMS TOOL SERVICE
