So I'm modifying a Nerf Vulcan to increase its fire-rate and all of that good fun. but I am running into a serious problem that I am having trouble fixing and I am getting concerned that I might render my gun useless if I don't do this properly.
I'm about half-way into completing the modification and I've now reached the slip clutch. This little gizmo is responsible for rotating the belt feed to ensure that the next dart feeds in, however it is has a safety in it to prevent it from "Force Feeding" and damaging itself. Whenever it tries to feed and too much force is applied to it, it "Slips" and does not feed instead.
For anyone that's ever done anything with the vulcan or havok fire (even the old maverick) this is really bad.
My problem is I need to disassemble it and I can't find a way in. The only method I know how to get in is to pry off the T shaped end cap (Part 1 in the picture), but it simply WILL NOT MOVE. It feels like its glued.
For reference here is the diagram of the part in question.
