    Hi, I am trying to get me woodruff keys out of my 200tdi crankshaft but they are not moving one bit. Has anyone got any tricks on how to get these out?

    They usually come out with a tap or two at either end but as yours has had pounding it is stuck and almost welded in [ the oldest way of welding is hammering metal together ] Try drilling some holes into the key so a punch can grip.
