Clutch Removal HELP!!!

We are having a terrible time trying to remove the clutch from my brother's 1989 Mach1 583. We havew tried just about everything we can think of, we have used an impact gun, heat, breaker bar, hitting the puller with a hammer. The clutch is really stuck on there, the puller shaft has started to twist now. Any ideas and experiences would be greatly appreciated, we're almost to the point of pulling the engine to disassemble and check/clean/repair the clutch. By the way the clutch is an aftermarket 108-C we didn't put it on, it was on when we bought the sled, I believe it was done by the local dealer. We really don't want to have to take it to a dealer. Thanks in adavance for any help.

Re: Clutch Removal HELP!!!

Don't HIT THE PULLER!! what you want is to palce a brass punch down between the two sheaves on the shaft then strike the punch and give the puller a turn or what you can and repeat until clutch is off.ONLY use a BRASS punch or you'll score up the primary shaft,BAD!!.if you think the puller is starting to twist take it out and get a new one.I used a twisted one and paid for it when it snapped off inside the shaft and stripped the treads on my crank,quite a mess.also try penetrating fluid down where the puller goes and also the back side of the primary,against the crank seal this may help loosen things.make sure you really clean up after or you'll have trouble with belts later on.hope this helps.
