Ring gear, inertial type, removal and replacement

Remove the old one by grinding a cut into a ring and hitting with a chisel.

To fit a new one, heat the ring with a torch or similar to about 300 C. This expands the ring so that it slips on the flywheel. Check that the ring sits straight and let it cool.

Simple as that.
