For all of those who have asked or are going to do your clutch, here is what works like a charm and took me 15 min to make. Yea this has been gone over alot in the past, but no one has put up an actual puller in action.

thats pretty cool
I ended up using a socket exstension
I slid it in and tapped on the sides
and wiggled it back and forth till it
came out, to make it a little easier I
sprayed some penatrating oil on it and
let it sit for a while

Not to Dis ya on your tool, its cool, but there is a easier way to do this. All you need is a bolt a little smaller than the bearing hole, some electrical tape a grease gun, and a hammer. Wrap electrical tape around the threads of the bolt just so it will not go into the pilot bearing hole easily. Next fill the cavity behind the bearing will grease, put the bolt with the tape on hte bearing hole, and then smack the bolt with a hammer. Bada Bing, hydraulic pressure forces out the bearing!

Yea I used to do it that way, but this way no grease mess at all, one good whack back & out it pops. Either way it does the same job.

Dont use grease unless you want a face full of grease. Grease trick is good for bushings. But the force of the grease on a sealed bearing will blow the seals and spray grease right in your face. Trust me. Grease in your eyes hurts like hell. That tool is very much like the Toyota SST. Use the right tool for the job when possible.

Looks like you built a slide hammer. Theres a regular bushing puller that you put in the hole and expand it with a bolt that then bottoms and pushes the bushing out.

what seal ? it's a pilot bushing. filling the void with wheel bearing grease works fine. doesn't sound like you've done it before. must cheaper than the toyoya sst

Autozone has a pilot bearing puller that you can borrow for free. It works great.
