Well this did not go well. I did not see any punch marks holding it in place and I was unable to take the collet off. I kept trying to twist and pull but the pliers kept slipping. Eventually the collet started getting deformed and the edges got rounded so that it now even more difficult to grip. Even worse, when the pliers slipped I whacked the pivot and damaged that too. At this point I think I’m just going to buy a new one. Not sure if I was doing something wrong or if that was just not meant to be taken apart.

There seem to be three versions of this ratchet wheel and I don’t know which one I need. They all have the same specs except for the “drop”. Not sure what this means but I have three choices: 19.5cm, 23.5cm and 28.5cm. Anyone know what this drop measurement is referring to?
