Torsion Bar Clamp

After noting the amount of threads visible on the torsion-bar adjuster bolts, a torsion-bar clamp is used to push the cogs up to release pressure on the torsion-bar adjuster bolts. The bolts are then removed, along with the threaded blocks they fasten to (shown). The torsion-bar clamp is then loosened and the torsion bars are slid forward out of the cogs. With the torsion bars removed, the cogs are then free to be removed. Note: The torsion bars can be stubborn to remove due to rust and may have to be hammered out.
