Below is a step by step instructions for the Billy Bob Replacement Ferrule for Both the Standard and the VR STR8-FIT adaptors.
You will Not need any special tools to remove the shaft
from the Factory Aluminum Sleeve. Any conventional shaft puller can be used.
Step #1 Place Ferrule and Sleeve in Conventional Shaft Puller
Step #2 Heat the Aluminum Sleeve, use the ferrule to cushion the top half of the sleeve against the puller head, You can’t save the ferrule….
Step #4 Give it time to cool down, Remove the sleeve
Step #5 Clean out any old expoxy from the metal sleeve
Step #6 It’s our feeling that a little coning on the factory sleeve is best, for protecting the new shaft
Step #7 Insert the ferrule and sleeve and mark the area you need to abrade the shaft
Step #8 As you see the ferrule and the sleeve have a Timing mark, it can only go on one way
Step #9 Apply epoxy inside the sleeve and small area around the shaft so the ferrule will
adhere to the shaft, do not get any epoxy on the swivel collar, it must be free to move, you are gluing the ferrule to the shaft
