    William doesn't mention the full set of oxy gas used to heat the dog clutches or the grease from years of operation, or the confined space. Very messy job. Hopefully this is the most physically difficult task required, now completed.

    The task seemed easy, just disengage the two dog clutches so that the paddles could spin freely. We need them to turn so that they can be grit blasted and repai...nted. After at least 15 years since the dogs were last disconnected, seems the steel surfaces bonded together. John surveys 2 weeks of driving wedges with a 7lb hammer - at last the job is done. On to the next task.
