Crank pulley removal tool

Postby Scooter1 » Tue Sep 08, 2020 11:39 am

My Son and I are working on a 48" cub project and it's running pretty well.
We have rebuilt the Magneto and the static time tutorial worked great.
Starting is not a problem now that I have switched to the Champion plugs for a cub that burns a little oil.
Changed all the fluids but seem to have the front seal behind the crank pulley seeping oil.

I need to build the floor stands that are made from the trailor jack stands but need help with the pulley removal.
Any suggestion on how to make, purchase or borrow a puller so we can keep our cub from leaking oil on the floor?

Thanks for all the great information found in this forum.

The HOW TO section has a simple version:
viewtopic.php?f=141&t=44517
A forum member used to make a puller that used a small bottle jack, which worked very well. Maybe someone near you has one you can borrow?

Just saw you are only an hour from Harrison, Ohio, where Barnyard is having a CubFest next month. If you haven't done the front seal by then, it would be a great opportunity to get help with it and meet some really nice forum folks!

Good luck!

Scott,

Welcome to the forum. Williamsburg is only an hour away from the Shallow Creek Farm CubFest on October 15, 16, and 17 in Harrison, OH. Lots of knowledgeable Cub folks there to assist with repairs, and good food. Haul your Cub over there and your front seal repair will happen in record time. You will need to have the parts necessary for your repair(s) in hand.

What is a CubFest, you ask? Take a look here:
http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=87593

If you can't bring your Cub, come on over anyway, you will be glad you did.

Search function. Crankshaft pulley puller. Several ideas there.

Above all do not try to use a 2 or 3 jaw puller on the pulley. You need the backing plate to keep from breaking the pulley.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Scott, by all means, bring your Cub to the CubFest in October. I have the splitting stands as well as the pulley puller to get the job done. I will send you a PM with my phone number.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Wow thanks for the offer!
I will definitely get the parts in order.
Anything else I should address while we are in there?
I have a used from axle as I have found repair welds and cracks so it needs to be replaced.

Welcome to the Forum!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Don't know if you have any of the manuals to your Cub, but now that you’ve logged your 2nd post, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended) and any service manuals that interest you. Implement Manuals are also available.

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

There are a lot of good threads dealing with Cub repair and maintenance in the How To Forum. Located here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=11

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see it.

Remember:
• When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
• Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
• When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

Scott,
Plan in getting the front seal and speedy sleeve. Most likely the pulley has some wear on it.
You may want to consider doing the rear seal as well.

TM Tractors (forum sponsor with link at the bottom of the page) offers the front seal WITH the wear sleeve.

There is also a HOW TO for an installation tool for the wear sleeve:

Spoke with bill last night and I think I will have both parts on hand seal and speedy sleeve.
Once pulley is removed we can determine what is needed.

Is the speedy sleeve worth it or just replace the pulley?

Anything else I should look into replacing while the front end is off the tractor?

New radiator hoses & clamps, and flush system.
Oil fan
Check/replace belts
Is steering tight and not leaking?
Solder in new overflow tube...TM Tractors has them
Clean air cleaner and crankcase breather tube...nearly impossible when tractor is assembled
Check/replace gov seal

Oh, and because I have such a case of OCD, a selection of wire brushes to clean everything up before reassembly!!! :lol:

Yes, the speedy sleeve is worth having since you can't see the wear until you remove the pulley. Any used pulley that you buy would most likely need the sleeve.

Looks like the seal and speedy sleeve runs $32 buck and new pulley $42-48. $10-15 Difference would I be better off to just get the pulley over the speedy sleeve.
