Oh, I got you now. I tapped the input shaft out with a rubber mallet. Then walked the rear shaft out of the back of the case and used my two jaw puller, no problems. Does this help at all?Originally posted by badfish:
<STRONG>I've got a shop press. I need a tool that will grab the snap ring groove to pull. <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"></STRONG>
Used my seperator and broke of the edge in the groove on the front. The bearing isn't out far enough to get behing it with a regular puller. I beat on with a it with a 3lbs bass hammer and no go. The first time I did it I used a puller that was made to pull a t-18 bearing and was circular and fit into the ring groove all the way around and worked awsome. I'm looking to buy something like that. The damn thing is on there so all the little tricks arn't working. <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">Originally posted by ozarkjeep:

I was able to tap mine off with a hammer as stated above, but I helped a buddy with his and it wouldnt budge, it required a puller, some are just tighter than others</STRONG>
Thank you! That's the info that I needed. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">Originally posted by Bronco78:
<STRONG>OTC Tool has the tool you want, last time I checked, it came as a set, with several inserts, and two sizes of collars. Or you could buy replacment parts, collar, or the inserts.
Not cheap, but nothing like having the right tool.</STRONG>
Does It work good? Do you think it is a quality tool that will last a long time?CJBoxer said:
AgreeKeith said:Quit fawkin around and tap the shafts to get them out. If you are breaking tools, then maybe the bearing is not coming out straight. A puller is nice, but I have never needed to use them on the many trannies and cases I have taken apart.
