Can't get tab into keyway
I do have the relevant pages of the manual and they seem to show all the relevant mechanisms.
The task was made more difficult because the router was mounted in a router table and also had a dust collecting cup installed. But I've removed all that and I'm now down to the basic router, nothing else attached. I've also removed all the tension on the lock lever, so it appears that the only thing that's preventing me from removing the motor from the base is the tension within the base itself. After a lot of fiddling I've gotten to the point where the arrow on the motor is within half an inch of the keyway where it belongs.
But that damned tab on the motor -- perhaps 1/32" thick -- butts up against the frame of the base. If I could relieve the tension within that frame, I could rotate the motor to align the arrow with the keyway and I'd be home free. Bur it seems to be pretty solid metal, and I've freed up all the locking levers that I can locate.
So near and yet so far.
And I appreciate the advice I've gottten so far.
