Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Clutch Disk Drum Removal?

I can't get the clutch disk drum off of my 26 transmission. I have a good quality puller on it but don't want to distort or break it getting it off. Any advice or tricks? It's really tight. PK

Usually a bit of localized heat near the center of the drum & where the Woodruff key is will assist in popping it loose. When you stated "I have a good quality puller on it" - is it a Ford Z puller, Stevens or equivalent ?

Steve, it's a Snap-On. I was worried about putting heat on it. I'll give it a try in the morning. PK

Langs sells or at least used to sell a puller for the disc drum. It works very well.

The puller Richard refers to is far superior to any of the original tools, so much easier to use. A bargain at twice the price asked.

We used a set up very similar to Art's. and the fool drum was so tight it straightened the J hooks we were using. Maybe we did not use a large enough diameter hook, or enough heat. Patience and a lot of messing with it got it off.

Localized heat will help. It's good news that the hub is tight. It's supposed to be. If it comes off easy, the hub, shaft, or both are worn and that will be the subject of another thread.

Is this the correct tool?

Yes, that is the Ford clutch drum (or hub) puller.

The Stevens puller is superior by far to the Ford puller.

Here's the set up I'm using. I had to work on my TT today so I'll get on the drum this evening. I guess I need more heat but it still worries me in here. PK
