Leave the gear on the shaft and drill out the screws holding the throttle plate to the shaft. Do so knowing that getting the plate centered again will be a SPITA!!
You need to pull the throttle shaft out and thats how it went in. Be careful as you could damage the plate, shaft and body if not aligned properly and cause it to stick or have a whacko idle.... Very thin feeler gauges come to mind to center it.
You could grind the back of the screws and unthread them (if smashed flat). Usually the screws are swaiged in place so they don't fall out the allow the throttle plate to stick.
