For some years I have been lucky enough to have access to a friends Colchester Student Lathe for various purposes. The Lathe has developed a leak which we have traced to the reverse lever. It looked to be a simple job at first, remove the nut on the shaft and just draw out the shaft, replace a washer and O-Ring and hey presto. Unfortunately I managed to get the nut and washer off the gear but the shaft will only come out about an inch before seizing solid. I cant see anything in the parts diagram and can only guess the shaft is bent?

Any advice on this would be appreciated before we get the really heavy gear in.
