Hey, I think I know what you are talking about. It is a vibration dampener. If you look close you should see the letters HT stamped on the part, on the face of the ring. The part you are referring to is called a Rattle Damper, should be part #309071 or #303071, or something like that, I can't recall off the top of my head. The HT stands for Hillsdale Tool, the company I work for. We make that part for New Venture Gear. Dampers are our specialty, we've been making the 350/305 chevy crankshaft damper for over thirty years. Any way I have not seen the disassembly tool, only the assembly tool. I sure would think you could make a disassembly tool. I know that the part is a press fit over the shaft, the hub i.d. is a very tight tolerence. My final word of advice is, what ever you do if you plan to reuse the damper, don't pull or push on the ring, it comes off fairly easy, somewhere in the neighborhood of 130 pounds of force will seperate the the ring from the rubber. Most dampers come apart much harder, but this damper is a very low frequency (soft rubber). If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me.
