After pulling the bendix cober it appears I have a broken lock washer....Is a puller the only way to get the spring off...i'm just getting started on this project and have let the organization of my tool room get way out of control....I have pullers, but in another location and I hate to start buying duplicates at this late date....I am impressed with the wide variety of approaches you men use for so many mechanical problems...I started my career as an a&e airplane mechanic and pilot, but the genius of Henty Ford as I srudy him and his car is so remarkable as to really put me in awe of this marvelous automobile.....I feel like an apprentice mechanic.....Thanks for any suggestion that will save me trips to the napa store......flivver jack

No pullers required.
Simple bolt removal is all it takes.

Remove, not just loosen the bolt on the outer end of the bendix. pull off the end of the bendix, remove the woodruff key then remove the rest of the bendix. Only then do you pull the starter or you will damage the mag coil pack. Good Luck.

If your asking about removing the Bendix "drive head" after you remove the spring bolts Ford made a special tool for this purpose.

You can adapt a gear puller if you do not have the original tool.

I should add the end of the armature shaft "drive head" spring screw hole and keyway are commonly upset making the Bendix "drive head" difficult to remove. Hence the puller.
Good luck
