The sprockets are tri-segmented sections mounted on a spilt hub. To remove the sprocket the three segments
must be removed from the hub. Cut the bolts holding the three sections of sprocket to the hub. Remove the bolts
and the sprocket segments.
The hub is a spilt into two sections which are bolted together Cut the bolts holding the two sections and remove
the hub from the shaft. The key should stay in the shaft.
Repeat this process for each of the four sprockets (two on the tail shaft and two on the head shaft)
The tail shaft assembly Is held in place by the chain adjustment system. Remove the two bearing plate slide
members on the catwalk side of the conveyor.
Remove the flange mount bearing held In place by four bolts See the bearing instruction sheet In Section 3-4-14.

The idlers are held to the shaft with a tapered bushing Remove the three bolts holding the bushing to the idler and
slide the idler off the bushing. Repeat this for the second Idler.
Slide the shaft out of the conveyor body. Remove the bushings and the idlers as the shaft is removed. (The shaft
will have to be clean to remove the bushings.)
