I've tried WD-40, levering, all sorts of stuff. Any ideas?
Get a deep-well socket thats just big enough to be the same diameter of the collar on the sproket and place it with the shaft on the open end of the socket. Then tap it out lightly. If you have a small vise use it also. if all else fails, use a lighter and heat up the sprocket being its brass it should heat up quickly and tap out smoothly. Just dont bend the shaft.
