Lucky me, JB Weld saved the trip and held my stripped countershaft sprocket nut on for the bulk of our 1,525 miles of Baja last week (Cabo to Tecate).

Now I need to figure out how to get the nut off, restore the threads on the countershaft, and hopefully do it all without splitting the cases...

Does anyone have any suggestions for removing a liberal amount of very solid JB Weld from the countershaft & sprocket nut?

If the threads are real bad, you might need a new shaft, ouch! Either way you're in for what seems like a lot of work. I know I wasn't much help, but had to comment

An impact wrench will make short work of it.
