U-Joint Taper Pin Removal Tool for Piper Control Yoke

An affordable tool to quickly remove stuck taper pins.

Piper AD2010-15-10 requires inspection of the connection between the control yoke universal joint and the shaft on the forward (engine) end of the joint. Removing the taper pin that holds the shaft and u-joint together can be very difficult due to the limited space behind the panel. To make matters worse, there isn't anything solid to hammer against, and using a hammer may damage the control yoke structure or delicate avionics.

The McFarlane taper pin removal tool makes this job easy and safe even with the most stubborn taper pins. Simply position the tool on the u-joint and tighten the bolts until the pin breaks free.

  • Makes removal of stuck pins easy.
  • Prevents damage from hammering behind the panel.
  • Compact to get into tight spaces.

This simple, affordable tool will save you hours of labour and frustration.  

  • Durable heat treated 4140 alloy steel.
  • Convenient kits help comply with AD2010-15-10 and Piper Service Bulletin 1197D.
  • Piper aircraft models PA28, PA32, PA34 and PA44.

Maintenance Tip:
How do I know if my universal joint needs to be replaced?
A universal joint attaches to each control yoke shaft behind the instrument panel. Replacement of the universal joint is recommended if any free motion or rust around the joint pivots is detected.
