Default Removing thingy from crankshaft.

Howdy all,

I'm currently restoring a 1975 'Briggs & Stratton' Engine, and would like to remove the small Metal Disc the Bladeholder bolts onto. This Disc is attached to the Crankshaft using a Key. I don't own a 'Puller', please give me some advice, as bashing the thing could damage the Crankshaft. for direct contact.

The best bet is using a puller,If you are not going to use a puller much you could rent one or go to one of them discount stores and see what they have.Usually pretty cheap,but it'll work .You could try heating the adaptor with a propane torch,it may wreck the seal but I assume you are replacing it anyway.Tom

Look in a supply catalog and get yourself a puller set. I picked up a 4 puller set for $45! Place the blade bolt in place, screw in all the way, then back out about 1/4" Center of puller on the bolt, apply pressure than tap adapter with hammer to shock it loose. If it is really tight on the shaft, you may have to pull it all the way off
