    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!
