Scored crank on 919.165600 - how to dismount from motor
Motor and Crank
I have a Craftsman 919,165600 6.5hp upright oil-less compressor with a problem. After about 2 years and 60hrs. of operation it failed. Pulling it apart revealed the end bolt on the crank backed off resulting in destroyed big end bearings and spacers, which then resulted in a scored crank. I would like to refurbish or replace the crank but how in heck does it come off the motor shaft?
Any help appreciated.

See the original post.
The motor shaft is not tapered. The eccentric, flyweights and the whole mess are held on by the crank pin being wedged into a notch in the motor shaft.
Hopefully these pictures will help the next person.
