Clutch Pulling

I have a JD 340/s Snowmobile wit a Comet 102c clutch
I paid 20 bucks for the clutch tool form Central
Snowmobile (a bolt and aluminum rod). I callled
them because there wasn't any directions and they told me they didn't
know how to pull the clutch other than sticking the rod and tightening
down the bolt. I have been doing that and the aluminum rod is just
mushrooming out and the clutch hasn't moved. What is a good way
to hold the pulley while trying to turn the bolt to back the clutch assembly off?
What am I doing wrong. We have 12 inches of snow here in NC and I can't get
the JD going!!!

Re: Clutch Pulling

I dont know why they gave you an alum. shaft, its way to soft for this kind of job. Get a one piece hardend steel puller. Tighten the puller untill snug and then alittle more to load it with pressure then take a brass punch and place this between the two sheaves and give it a good hit. Only use brass punch or you'll mark up the primary shaft. You may have to tighten the puller again and hit the punch a few times but it should jump right off. Dont tighten the puller so much that its binding or you may twist it in the shaft and may strip the clutch treads. Hope this helps. I thought the 340 DEERE came with a 92C?
