Hello Bob and Arutha,
Thanks for your tips! I was able to take care of the problem of removing the cannon pinion
by using a few drops of penetrating oil and allowing it a little time to penetrate. I then
used two very small screw drivers and formed them into micro pry bars. After the oil did
its job of freeing the cannon pinion, I used the pry bars to lift and remove the
cannon pinion. It worked very well. Also, I found that the main spring was broken.
It appears the safety pinion did its job of protecting the movement. Thanks again!
