New Crankshaft Pinion removal tool
« on: 06.11. 2017 11:44 »
Found this on ebay this morning :
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bsa-A7-10-crank-pinion-puller/263302613129?hash=item3d4e0f0889:g:T1cAAOSw0exaAC-T

THE SELLER HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME etc
I just wondered if the tool was a Lifesaver or a waste of time and money?
The seller had them made up and hails it as a success .. what do you folks think ?

Looks good to me and, I believe, the next time I need to pull off the pinion I'm going to wish I had one. Nevertheless, unlikely for me to spend that much coin for somthing I've rigged up in the past with a cheap puller for about $10.

When I was rebuilding my A10 I contacted SRM who were going to do the crank re there imput for where to locate a puller for this job wanting to do it "right " there reply was 2 large screw drivers behind the cog will pop it off . Well it worked much to my surprise it just went clonk and was off no damage and in no time . Was I just lucky ?? *dunno*

Like Musky, I have a similar kit picked up at an autojumble tool stall.  Very versatile - and strong!

That normally works but I have actually had them that tight that I have milled a special puller and broken that even with oxy/ace on it

That one I had to put into an engineering shop to get it off and they told me it was ridiculously tight
