There is no screw in the bottom of the check what I mean by thin wrench there is a slot in between in between the motor and the truck and according to the few pictures I saw they put a open-end wrench in there to hold it in order to do that I need a thin open-end wrench
Expert:  Eddie replied 4 months ago.

A bicycle repair shop might have that kind of wrench........I'm not sure if you need it tho......usually there is a screw with a reverse thread on the bottom of the chuck ..............once that is removed you take a thick allen wrench and tighten it good on the chuck then tap it with a hammer...... going counter clockwise to remove it...........if you could get me the model number too

Thanks
