ive tried so many chain breakers and pin presses and they all make for too much work

i just use a hammer and a steel block with a 1/8 hole
tap the old one down flush. then use the new pin to push the old one out
takes 10 seconds

What is the part number for the replacment pins?

Also, I have to replace my front center drive shaft on my 2.0 buggy. The pin is very worn after 1.5 gallons, But the ball on the other end is also worn, so I just bought a new driveshaft.

..i dont know how a chain breaker can be too much work....you twist a lever and pop it out, place a new one in adjust the cam and twist it in.....Hammering with a hammer would be real hard to gauge if you are centered in the bone....1 strike might be .5mm where a tap will do Nothing...a breaker you can be a lot finer with as you are using the thread's of the tool.

Mugen pins 12.8 for center's and 13.8 for wheel bones.

Guys i have used ever thing made to replace the pins in a Losi. A Chain Brake a Vice and Socket a Big Hammer and my tool Works better then any thing i have found YET.
And as Integra Said it is hard to tell using all the other ways to see if you get the Pin centered with my tool you can see the top part of the Pin and you can tell if it is Centered.
My tool is all so good you can use it at the track and carry it with you because it don't take up a lot of space in your pit box.
I take mine to all the races that way if me are a friend do brake a Pin i have it in my pit box and ready to do the work.

And for $35.00 buck shipped you cant get a good Chain Brake are one that will work as good as this tool.

i guess im just better with a hammer
plus i dont see the point in another tool when i already own a hammer

but for those who dont replace the pins and by new driveshafts YOUR CRAZY
buy one of the above mentioned tools and replace the pins. its so much cheaper

Bonesaver, which is very similar In appearance to yours is a POS! That pin that sticks out of the screw broke the second time I used it..It was worthless after that..Never again..I spent the big bucks and got the Hudy one..and all is well now..I hope your quality is better than the Bonesaver..good luck, get rich, retire, Race allot

Jaz240 my tool dose work much better then the Bone Saver i have used Both and you are right there tool is not up to my Standers that i way i made the first one months ago and have used it 100's of time's just to see how it would hold up. And it has worked GREAT but all i have tryed it on is Losi 8 buggy and Truggy so i am not sure how it will work with other cars out there but i would love to find out. As you can tell from the price i am not trying to get Rich just trying to help some Fellow RC guys.

Default the other side wears out too

Am I the only one who's bones wear out on the other end too. I usually get alot of slop from wear in other places before my pins get worn or broken. The other end of the bone seems to wobble out way sooner.

depends if you run the CVD's dry or with some sort of lube....which can minimize wear big time.
