Going to replace old style bendix with new style. How does old style come off of the shaft. Must be a pin I am not seeing.

If I recall some old posts I read, you have to retract a spring somewhere on the shaft and that reveals the pin, which you then drive out with the appropriate drift, or it just falls out. You may have to put the thing in a vise in order to get it to retract enough to reveal the spring.
I hope I have this right - hopefully someone else will jump in on this and either confirm or correct what I've just said.
Well, I just checked the archives and here is what Dell says about it: "this has been asked and answered many times, you might want to browse the "archives" at the top of this great N-Board.

But for you special, the secret for removing and installing yer bendix is yer left-armpit. You doubt? Gently clamp yer starter shaft UPSIDE-DOWN in yer bench vise and with yer armpit, press down on yer starter motor. That will compress yer internal Bendix spring fully expose the spring roll-pin and you can hold a drift-pin (nail) and eazily hammer yer spring-pin outta the starter shaft. Isn't that AMAZING?

Replacement is a reversal of the removal....except....many like to slightly "bevel" grind the end of the spring-pin before re-inserting. Again use yer armpit and drift-pin. Simple, eh?..........respectfully, Dell with dirty pitts

Thanks. I knew I had seen it before but, guess I just didn't compress the spring enough.
