Tech Tip

When installing the repair kit for the HP 4, 4plus, 5, and Apple Laserwriter Pro Series printers to fix Accordion Paper jams in the Paper Output Aassembly. When you come to the removal of the gear assembly to replace the belt, I found that even useing a small screwdriver, the shaft of the screwdriver still can put a lot of strain on the plastics as you try to get the blade as close as possible to the shaft to pop the gear assembly off. I found that useing a Slot Cover from a PC Expansion Card Slot does a nice job. It is thin and will slip behind the gear assembly and right down to the shaft. Most every shop probably has them laying around and I keep one in my tool box now. Hope it helps someone.
