Pulling touch control valves

Postby ShawnAgne » Sun Dec 05, 2021 8:15 pm

The touch control wouldn't hold the A60 blade so since we don't have snow forecasted yet, and I have the Cub ready to go if there is a surprise I pulled the touch control block and decided to rebuild it. Just wanted to say the automotive valve removal kit with slide hammer from Harbor Freight makes pulling those valves a VERY quick and easy process. Tried doing the pliers thing but it wasn't going anywhere very quickly. Use the HF tool and bam done in a couple minutes.

Can you post a link to the tool? I'm not sure I understand what tool it is. Thanks!

It is the slide hammer and bearing pulling tool

The two smaller attachments pull all the valves in the touch control.

I would love to see one of these rebuilt sometime. Before I tear mine down. Has anyone seen a youtube video on rebuilding one?

Workinonit, if you decide to try rebuilding yours, these 2 HOW TO's will help a lot. There's one for either the early-style block or the later, depending on the Touch Control block part number.
Early style:

And the later style:

I got to rebuild my Super A's touch control its pouring fluid like a sieve. Dale's video links will be a big help and I already have the bearing puller from another project thanks a million to you guys for the ideas.
