Pull or get a new crank pulley

Postby ShawnAgne » Tue Oct 11, 2016 8:34 am

Picking up a new motor today for the Cub and was just wondering if it wouldn't be easier to get a new crank pulley as opposed to pulling the other one off the existing motor and putting it on the new one.

Found this one on the interwebs for $24. It all depends on what is worth more to you, the time and hassle or the money. Of course when you buy a used part you run the risk of there being something wrong with it, so that needs to be taken into account as well. Perhaps the crankshaft hole is wallered out or the key way is rounded. Just something to consider.

Edit: I looked back at this one and it is up for bid, so it won't go for the $24 I originally said. That being said, I saw several for the $50 range. Quite a bit more, but that's up to you.

New crank pulley wasn't that expensive when I did my '53 a couple years ago. Something like $20 from Bates Corp.

You'll spend more on shipping the crank pulley puller equipment around, or buying the materials and jack to make your own.

Even though I used a bearing separator and heat, I still broke my pulley getting it off to replace the front seal.
