    Hi all, i've been browsing the forums and read a ton of helpfull stuff. But i'am absolutely stuck here, i have read all of Norms instructions on this problem but nothing seems to work.

    I'am trying to remove the large gear on the right side of the engine, i have removed the flower nut, the bolt and the plate etc and now i;am looking at the clutch pads. I tried using the puller tool with no success, i have reemed on it and the little nut in the middle while trying to hold the outer side of the puller tool with a wrench, this thing will not budge! i concidered trying to use a snipe pipe on my wrench but if it is going to take that kind of power to use the puller tool something can't be right. Any help would be appreciated!

    Do you have a pic
    You have to remove the nut from the middle of the clutch first
    but my pullers will not thread in with the nut there

    They come off pretty easy as there is only a key that stops the clutch
    from turning

    Maybe its rusted on? I had a lot of 10 tooth sprockets that needed to
    be soaked with heavy duty penetrating goop before they would come off.

    Yeah i removed the nut and the little washer type thing, but you're right and i will post pics tomorrow, kinda late right now. Thing has been driving me nuts (pun intended).

    Big picture reason is i had a main crank gasket blow on me, grubee skyhawk 66 brand new. It went just below the bolt hole in the front part of the engine. I only realy just noticed it after i started having performance problems and then i had to keep turning the idle screw in, then i knew i had an air leak which i assumed would be one of the head gaskets or inner gaskets, or carb, checked all those over and over without seeing any problems. Before long i kept noticing a black stain just below the forward crankcase bolthole, then, pow!

    LOL


    Anyways, i need to get a new gasket in there, i'll heed norms advice about the ball bearings. Damn thing is in there awfully tight!
