How wore should they be when you need to replace them?

I replace mine before the wear is more than a fingernail deep.

Pins are cheap, and you have your driveshafts out often to service bearings, so with a good tool they're easy to replace.

Worn pins will accelerate wear on your outdriveS$$$$$.

If the pins are worn to the point that they are thin, you need to grind down the thin part.

UPDATE: I have been very happy with the bonesaver (with hardened screws) while using it for my Losi.

However, I switch chassis and went to Xray and discovered these won't work for xray pins. I heard xray heats the bone and freezes the pins when they are initially made. This makes for a much tighter fit.

I destroyed 2 pins and my hardened screws before I gave up on the bonesaver.

My friend popped them right out with the Hudy tool. Now should I get the Hudy tool so I don't have to worry about it? Or should I try the chain breaker? I can only afford to do this right once so I'm leaning towards the Hudy unless someone knows a cheaper alternative.

Cory: Did you ever purchase the chain breaker for your Xray? How is that working out for you?

Integra: Can you post a new link for the chain breaker? The old one is out of date.

BTW: I dont want to trash the bonesaver. As I said earlier, it worked great for me on my Losi. It just doesn't work on Xray pins.

I found the chain breaker in my shop. I haven't used it yet, but i would imagine it would work great.

Razo if your using the hudy replacement pins try dremeling the end flat before you try to push it out.The hudy pins are round on the ends so if the bolt that you use to drive the pin out is slipping off to the side it causes the pin to break.
I use the mugen pins for this reason as they are flat on both sides.A little heat with the heat gun also helps them come out easier.

another good reason for the breaker which "captures" the pin and WILL not allow the press pin to go cock eyed and slip off.
