Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
I have found that most of the time you can remove these with either a pair of side cut pliers or a small punch and hammer. Side cut pliers you can normally slide around the key and grip the sides of the key with the pliers and lift the key right out. Punch and hammer, if you will set the punch on one of the key and tap it with the hammer it will normally slide the key right out.
