Default how to pull thrust washers?

I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas (or tips) for pulling engine thrust washers (specifically on the Saito 325 radial)?

I know that two methods exist already - using a pronged thrust washer puller - or an arbor press...

A thrust washer puller only puts force on the drive washer and the shaft that the collet is locking together. A press would put the load on the bearings, which you don't want to do.

Hi teryn,

There is a thread with excellent pictures on this topic in the Glow Engines forum.

Cheers,

Thanks for the answers! I ended up using a Posilock gear puller.

You need to purchase a bearing seperator and a gear puller at a better auto parts store.


Enjoy,

Jim
