    Heat the gear with a lighter, the best lighter to use is a butane log/grill lighter. Then drop it on quickly.

    If you heat up the shaft, you can put the gear in a freezer and itll make it even easier.

    Hold the shaft with pliers when you heat it up, then slide the gear right onto the shaft and let it cool on its own.

    Wait, it just drops on when you heat it up? No hammering? Which should you heat, shaft or gear? When I did this on my stampede, I hammered it on.
    Who needs coffee when you have a 10KV+ capacitor?

    Heating the gear will make it expand, it should make it easier to drive it onto the shaft than if they are both room temperature. You can try freezing the shaft (it will contract) but it's hard to coordinate the two processes and put them together.

    But do you still need to hammer it on, or does it just make it easier?

    It will make it easier although it is possible it could drop in place too depending on manufacturing tolerances.

    I am assuming that you have not tried this on these particular parts then. I guess I will have to do my own testing on this next time I need to mess with the top shaft on any of my trucks.

    Yes, I have done it in the past. I use Pro-Line transmissions mostly now.

    Thanks for the help! I will certainly apply this new knowledge to the next time I need to mess with the top shaft or the gear that is on it.

    Heat the gear, freeze the shaft.
