crankshaft pulley puller for 154/184/185?

Postby RustyKnuckles » Mon Mar 03, 2014 9:18 pm

What do people use to pull the large-diameter pulley found on these tractors? The fixtures people make up for Cubs are of course too small.

Remove the bolt and washer from the end of the crankshaft and it'll pull right off. I've removed a couple, no tools required.

You mean, this pulley is not an interference fit, as it is with the Cubs?

No, there's a key in it, so like Raymond said, just pull the bolt and the pulley will come of pretty easy. I've had to replace a few of those keys.

I two / three jaw puller can be used if its stuck on there. However they are not like the early cubs at all in the degree of difficulty to remove.

When you pull it off, inspect the key and the pulley hub area for wear. 1/2 my key was worn off.
