Vespa smallframe engine strip down and rebuild. 8. Removing the gearshift assembly and rear axle.
you have removed the gears you will see this. Note that I have
undone the bolt on the top a little to make removal easier
- in practice it actually makes little or no difference so you
might as well leave it fastened.
To remove this from the engine case you need to move
the gear selector so it is in fourth gear - or at least where fourth
gear would be if you hadn't removed it! This will make the next
step easier which is to tap out the whole assembly from the other
side. Place a block of wood on the end of the axle and tap the axle
through by hammering on this bit of wood.
