Bearing locating pin
hi guys, I'm putting together another 1200r but I noticed that the locating pin on the front bearing support (upper case) has been pushed all the way in, Is there a way of pulling it out

I drill thru from the intake side an push the pin back. Spot the case to get the drill started straight on the angled surface. I have to sharpen the drill after it hits the pin! Your machinist with a good drill press or mill will be able to do it. I am sure it could be done with a hand drill if you are careful.
Put some red Loctite in with a needle after the pin is pushed back.
This will get you going.

I removed one recently for Spud. I have access to EDM equipment and used a hole popper to burn a hole through the center of the pin which left just a shell. I was able to remove this with ease. The case remained in its original condition. If you can find somone who has a wire EDM shop this is a good solution, takes about 15 minutes to do the task. Lowell's method work's good also.

Another easy way is to weld something like a small nut on it.
Put a nut on center then fill the nut with welding rod.
Then you can pull it out.
Got to be carefull
If done right leaves a little residue to clean up but no big deal.
I was able to remove residue with a ground carbide insert in 15 seconds.
