Mike & Eric,

You have figured correctly.  In the method I used the epoxy is ONLY inside the foil, not overflowing into the collar that connects the foil to the gearbox.

Anytime you need to get epoxy to lose its grip, apply heat.  Most cured epoxies begin to soften at relatively modest temperatures, usually below 100C.
