Secondary Clutch removal

Is there an easy way to take off a stuck secondary, the clutch is screwed so im not concerned about beating it..but in an hour I only got it to move 3/16th with a hammer and a flat head. I have a puller but its just to tight to get the bolt for the puller in.

Can you take the clutch apart while its on the shaft so it will come off easier??

Got any type of heat? I've also heard of guys cutting the clutch in parts and grooving and splitting the remaining piece. How the heII did it get that stuck?

The last one I did I cut the shaft in 3 pieces and ordered a 15 dollar driveshaft off ebay. Most people do not get that bad of a attitude towards them though.

I got it to move almost a 1/4 inch, I soaked it with liquid Wrench and I am going to buy a pickle fork and try that tomorrow.

Easiest way I have found is to remove the whole clutch with shaft still attached and then press it off in a shop press. You will have to at least loosen the left belly pan and take the top gear off at the chaincase. Then the shaft will slide out the left side of the sled. There is a key for the brake disk. Don't lose that. One sled I bought it was o tight that when I pressed it off using my 20 ton press, it sounded like a shotgun blast when it finally broke loose. I was still able to clean up both the shaft and the clutch and use them.

Buy a proper puller. The shaft seizes on and can be a bear to get off. Make sure you lube the shaft with Never-seize when you put it back on

Depending on how stuck they are, the pullers that bolt to the secondary posts may or may not work. Most times I guess they do, but I know a guy that broke the posts right off the secondary using the genuine AC puller.
