Another jammed sprag clutch!

I am stripping an engine and the sprag clutch was really jammed.

If you look at the way the bearing assembly has been bent, this sprag kicked back big time!  Can't believe it wasn't giving out audible warning signals to the owner well before this happened. confuse

I have found the best way to safely unjam the sprag is to pad the vice jaws to hold Gear3, put a couple of bolts in the sprag and turn it anti-clockwise with a bar.
