I am trying to remove the clutch disk drum, I am using a puller but I ended up bending the handles.
How much force is this going to take? do I need to get a specialized puller? help!
Did you remove set screw? They can be tight sometimes,and they really don't need to be.
Jeremy Langs makes a puller that is really good for removing stubbord disc drums.
Jeremy, I was told that Sears had a puller that was great. I went ahead and bought it and it has worked excellent for me when I needed to remove a clutch disk drum. Yeah, those drums are extremely tight. The part is Craftsman puller #9-46906.
Good Luck. Ryan
Most of the time I need to use my acetylene torch and turn the center of the hub red. It comes right off them.
My father in law has that exact puller. I'll get it tomorrow, and pull it out..
Side question - is there a trick to remove and replace the water jacket freeze plug.
Try using a larger punch that is rounded on the end and dome the freeze plug inward and it may fall out. I have engines that have nickles in them as freeze plugs. They were domed using a nut as a support , put in place and then the dome was hit with a hammer or punch to flatten it a little. Makes an interesting plug.
Only Buffalo Nickles are politically correct.
