blatz, you trying to pull a salibury model 910 ?? if so I got a puller I made .. its out in my shop and I'm not going out now it's near midnight and its zero out... but tommorrow I'll go out and measure it for you and let you know . if you have a hack saw you can make one for yourself.. it uses the large bolt in the clutch and it work better than the factory style puller.. I think Imade it out of 3/4" round stock but I don't remember off the top of my head how long it is .. here's a tip for you. if you have a hard time getting the clutch off heat the shaft of the clutch with a torch as you apply the pressure with the puller they come off real easy like that.

Thanx plab, that would be awesome. I'm not sure of the model but I believe it is the standard one for most of the early 70's stuff. This is on a '70 panther w/399 kohler. I really appreciate the help.[attachment=116904SC01629.JPG]

oh oh .. is that A photo of your clutch? the puller I made is for a 910.. won't work on that one

here's the info for the 910 puller... .875 x 3.5" round stock . remove the large center bolt. this takes a 1 1/2" socket or wrench , this bolt is hollow. insert the piece of round stock , tighten with an air wrench.A little heat on the clutch shaft with an oxy/acc torch hit it with the air wrench again. it will come nice and easy... it's important when you use a torch to use an oxy/acc setup.. It will heat the clutch fast .thus not much heat will have time to transfer to the crank . if you use propane it takes to long and the crank will heat some and expand right along with the clutch shaft.


blatz that clutch looks fairly simple to pull.
looks like the hole is threaded inside ??? if it is find out what the size it is .. than buy yourself a grade 8 bolt .. that fits the hole
cut yourself a piece of round stock that fits in the HOLE OF THE CRANK SHAFT. it needs to fit in the hole without to much play so it won't damage the crank threads .. you can figure what you need closely by going buy the bolt that hold the clutch on . this part I turn on my lathe so it has a shoulder on it but it's not really nessary... now measure the depth of the hole FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE CRANK SHAFT HOLE TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE CLUTCH. .. now the bolt that fits the threads on the outside part of the clutch. give an inch to work with
so the depth measurement you have ? cut a piece of round stock 1" shorter than the measurement.... drop it in the hole screw your bolt in on top of it and crank it up tight use a torch as I desribed above if you have to it'll come off..

Pic is of my clutch, I tried a piece of round stock with the original bolt, but I will try with a longer one. I have a straight acetylene tank torch for brazing but not an oxy torch ( cutting torch ) so I dont know if I should try the heat. Thanx for your help.

Actually I thought it was 20mm then I realized it wasnt a foreign clutch so I bought a 3/4-18 and it is too small! Back to hardware store for a 7/8. Thanks for reply!

Here is the way i remove clutches.
1. Put sled on its side. (clutch side up of course)
2. Remove bolt holding clutch on.
3. Fill the hole that the bolt comes out of with oil.
4. Find bolt that threads into clutch, wrap with Teflon tape and tighten bolt (don't get between the clutch and anything solid some clutches come off with allot of force).
This is the method i use to remove all of my clutches and have never failed to remove 1, never any damage, or bent tools
