Crankshaft Pulley Puller

Postby tst » Mon Mar 18, 2019 7:19 pm

Hi All, as many of you know getting the front pulley off a cub engine can be a chore at times, have seen all types of pullers made and methods to remove it, some have "Earls" puller which worked better than most, myself as I rebuild many engines a year and have bent and worn out a few of different types, in between working on cubs every day I made a new one that I think combines a little of all the different types, it is made heavy duty and weighs more than the others but works wells, I work alone so it had to be handled easy, most you need three hands to work it, a lot of this is similar to Earls type with changes

The plate for where it slips behind the pulley is 3/4", the rods are 5/8" high strength so it will not bend, uses a 12 ton jack which is bolted to the top plate so with the handle on the jack the whole unit can be held up and in place with one hand while the other can set it in place and work the jack, to help keep it from slipping on the bolt in the crankshaft I made an adapter that fits the top of ram of the jack and fits over the head of the bolt in the crankshaft so once it has pressure no more sliding off to one side and getting crooked, I use a 4" bolt to start it moving and then switch to a 6" bolt to finish it off, so far I only use a short handle and they have all pulled off very easy with this

Some jacks will only work if the pump is on the downside due to oil supply
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Love the adapter so the jack won’t slip off. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry got to bring this thread back.
Tim what were the dimensions of the two plates?
Just finished making a splitting stand and have leftover 1/2” x 6” plate steel. I had to buy a minimum of 5’ to get what I needed for the stand so I’ve got plenty. I have the bottle jack as well. All I need to get are the rods.
Also how’d you cut the center hole?
3” Is a big hole to make in steel.

I saw that thanks but Tim’s is a little different.
The plates look a little more rectangular which is why I asked. They also look like their 1/2” which is what I have to work with.
Like I said I had to buy 5’ of steel to get 14” worth to make my splitting stand leaving me with almost 4’ worth of steel resting in the corner of my barn. It’s 6” wide and at $45 for that piece I’m guessing another piece 3/4”x 8” x 5’ would be over $60 and I’d end up with 2/3’s of that sitting in the corner keeping the other piece company. :roll:
Searching the forum I’ve seen photos of at least 3 or 4 different renditions of this tool.
I get the basic design but cutting that 3” In thick plate steel looks like something that would challenge a hole saw. I drilled the holes for the stand with almost a constant stream of oil on the bit keeping it cool. Can’t imagine what a hole saw needs.

Maybe. Could be the camera angle or what ever tst had on hand.

I don't know where you buy your steel, but that seems like a high price. I always go to my local welder and buy it by the foot. Some times they have scrap pieces laying around from a previous job. I bought my 4"x4" bottom plates for my trailer tie downs for $2.00 apiece with the holes drilled in them because they were scraps.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I would just visit my metal scrap pile or visit the neighbors with metal scrap piles.

Local welder as Bill suggests or anyone locally that picks up scrap metal.

Problem is around here, “I’m that guy”.:roll:
Nobody else around here makes there own anything or repairs their own equipment, cars or trucks. It’s sad really. They just open their wallets and accept defeat. :cry:
The demensions I needed for Tim’s piece are 6”x8”, 8”x8”, that kinda thing.
The only place you can buy by the foot is at Home Depot but you end up spending for the 1’ piece the same as you would for that 5’ piece from the iron works. Sometimes they have scraps they sell but if they don’t it’s a 5’ minimum.
I’m lucky they do that. Here I am with a $50 order and they always ask what company I’m with. I say it’s just me and I get that look... :?
The guy in front of me has a $2k+ order being filled as does the guy behind me. Dealing with me is barely worth their time.
I’m like the only one they get buying welding supplies and materials for my own use.
People around here just don’t do that anymore and their amazed I do, am able, or even want too.
There are those that like the old stuff but many more think I should ditch them all for a new kabota and take it to the dealer for all it needs.
I think they drank the koolaid and threw up the white flag.

Surely there has to be welding shops somewhere near you. What about Big Bill's Welding in Freehold?

He works out of his house and has minimal stuff on hand plus he’s getting on some. Surprised he even has a listing up.
I did get with him about getting an aluminum lower unit crack welded up for my boat.
He has skills but a small part time operation.
Guys like him are fading away.
