Any chance you can get a closeup pic of the business end of your remover ??

Had to change a DixieChopper wheelmotor that some idiot welded to the frame..what a treat...
I've mentioned it several times. (as have others) The best way I've found to remove those little buggers is with a small sheet metal screw! I clamp it in a small vice grip and give a few turns and pull the sucker out, consistently!
I have the Echo and Stihl tools, but don't use em'.
The tool is a fine left hand
