As happens, some idiot spams a thread and we loose valuable information. The following is an experiment. I choose a thread at random, "painted & copied" it and pasted it below. My thought is, why not do the same for a spammed thread and repost it before it gets deleted, (minus the spam of course), as I've done here?

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.

Jerry,

That idea works good. It takes a little longer to put any pictures back in but the text part is not very hard to do at all. I just did that with a thread on the Beaudett body numbers [see: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/50893/79373.html?1232381237 ] -It wasn't Spammed -- just I had put the information in the wrong thread and hi jacked it by mistake so I relocated/reposted it. But the same thing would work for a Spammed thread..

I think if someone is interested in a thread they would be ahead to save the thread to their compute before any spam ever is posted. And if you save the web address with your document (like the one I posted above I keep it with my file on that subject) -- you can easily go back to the thread and add any new information that is added to it. Then if it ever gets hit with Spam and deleted or if it dies with a server upgrade etc. you still have access to it. For ones you want to make sure others also have access to it -- reposting it is a great idea. Not every Spammed thread would need reposting -- such as when will the X,Y,Z Swap meet next meet. If the date has gone by already -- it probably doesn't matter.

Respectfully submitted,
