best way to get this off

Recommended Posts

what is the best way to get the input yoke off the front of the BGB? I have tried and tried to get this off but no luck. I would post a picture but can't find the button to do so.

2 long threaded bolts will push it off. Screw them through the threaded holes and push against the frame with them.

Make sure you loosened the set screw.

Soak it, soak it, soak it, and then 2 bolts. Always worked for me. What ever you do, be careful with heat. You can heat it some and soak it the first time, but you dont want to melt the seals...

One thing that my brother taught me was if the puller is really tight, tap on the end of the puller bolt lightly. Sometimes this will loosen the pulley enough to put more torque on the puller and then tap on the end or the puller bolt again. Repeat to work the gear off.

well I tried my puller, but it just didn't get a good grip. I oiled it up and got 2 3" long 3/8" bolt and walked it right off. took longer to put my cold cloths on than it did to get it off. thanks again. I don't know why I didn't think of that, guess I was so focused on the puller not getting the job done I wasn't thinking. any how thanks guys, now on to the next step of getting these BGB off.
