How not to remove a crank pulley

Postby Winfield Dave » Sun Oct 09, 2011 5:08 pm

This is what happens when the wrong tools are used to pull the crankshaft pulley off.

Dave, my fingers, and pulley puller look so pretty in the pictures. If I had known we were going to be internet stars, I'd have washed the fingers and painted the tool, and been even prettier! Ed

Thanks Cecil, Ed, and everyone else for helping me get that pulley off and all the help and advice with the block. The right tool makes all the difference!

Great pictures Dave - I hope people find this post before trying to use just a two jaw puller!

Did you built the crank pulley remover or is it commercially available?

Watching the video of installing the pulley back on the cub. Dumb question, from a non-mechanic. How do you know when the pulley is "home"? Does it contact a flange, or what?


Thanks for your assistance.

stop when the pulley edge is about a 1/4 inch from the tip of the timing indicator. if you dont, you run the risk of twisting off the threaded rod or trashing the threads in the crank.

Interestingly enough the busted up pulley was replaced with a brand new IH pulley. Cecil cooked it for about a half hour in his shop toaster oven at 350 degrees.
Engine was sitting on the bench with the crankshaft vertical. He started the pulley on crankshaft gave it hit with his fist and it dropped right on. :shock: ....that was easy!

The puller in the "still" photos is mine, homemade, because Earl was out of them, when I needed it. Earl's is much lighter, and easier to handle. Mine really needs 2 people to handle it, but it has never failed to do its job. Ed

I also install mine with an air wrench and you can readily tell when the pulley seats as the sound from the wrench will change--haven't lost any threads yet :wink:
