ft pulley removal

Postby tomstractor » Sun Nov 08, 2020 3:31 pm

I need to remove the ft pulley on my Cub. I have a bearing separator and a puller but the timing pointer is
the way to put the separator on. Does this pointer come off or ??

So far, Paul and Ringo have arrived. John and George were supposed to follow ages ago, but apparently have gone awol. Long story.

Lots of people have broken the front pulley using bearing pullers. Check the How-to section. You’ll find a couple options for homemade alternatives that provide the pulley better support.
I don’t know the answer to whether the timing pointer comes off, but I imagine you’ll find the answer to that (or if it is necessary) in the how-tos as well.

Hmm. One is missing pictures.

I’m sure I’ve seen other options, but not sure where.

I have the same tools that are used in the 2nd option but the pointer gets in the way. Does "tst" make the adapter to use a jack?

The pointer is a press fit, but I've never tried to remove one. Can you borrow a slightly smaller bearing separator?

I made a "custom" spanner bolt for my bearing separator. Basically, it's two 5/8" bolts, about 4" long with the heads both welded to a nut, which provides a hole for the pointer to protrude through. Works good and the pointer can stay. The pointer could be removed but you'll probably destroy it in the process, it's a very tight press fit!
