You will need to get an allen key, and loosen the allen nuts holding the fan scroll in place, then it should just slip away!

Need to remove squirrel-cage shaft This is the type of puller used on a blower cage removal. Not a 3 armed gear/pulley removal tool. Most HVAC supply houses, though wholesalers only, should sell you a tool but not parts. Especially with cash in hand. A contractor can expect to pay $30-50. You mentioned retain bolts from both ends of shaft so I'm not sure what you're working on but I hope this helps. The shaft is probably seized to the bearing/hub. May be necessary to replace the shaft, bearings, ext/all new. Most bearing supply houses carry shafts at 3' length.

2001 audi a4 steering wheel removal, the type of tool and size

Steering wheel pullers can be rented. If it's a tilt wheel, then different pullers have to be rented. Before you take the wheel off, mark the wheel hub where it mounts on the shaft so there won't be any misalignment when you put the wheel back on. Wheel pullers are universal in size.

How to remove flywheel on a model 80202?

The best thing to do for this info is get a service manual from you local library.

You need to first remove the blower housing/starter cover to expose the flywheel. Next you need to remove the coil, Next remove the flywheel nut using an impact wrench (or find something and someone to hold it while you remove the nut), Their is a puller for this job, you use two 5/16 bolts with a puller and an impact wrench again. Tighten the puller, then........take a hammer and smack it on the END of the puller while it is still tight. The flywheel will POP off the tapered shaft. dont loose the flywheel key, or just plan on replacing it.

To reinstall it DO NOT grease the tapered shaft ( to make it come off easier next time),Just place the flywheel on and resecure.

Hope this helps

My blower wheel on our nutone 9093 vent fan keeps

Buy a tube of Household Goop, and put some on the front and back of the hole the motor shaft goes through and glue the wheel in place. Make a little 'pile' or filet around the shaft/wheel joint. Let it dry a couple of hours.Goop is extremely handy, sticks like glue should, stays flexible, is cheap, etc.

I am removing the blower fan from the 1'' shaft of a Briggs & Stratton 5 hp engine. I have already removed the retaining bolt & washer. Now how to I get the fan off the motor shaft?

you may need a puller like a pulley puller or something like that if you look at the shaft it should have a convex spot in the middle for the puller to rest on

BR550 Blower No Compression

You can rent and use a wheel puller providing that your blower is strong enough not to bend, crack or break under the stress. OR...have a friend help by them or you holding the whole unit up by the blower fan itself and then your friend or you can hit on the blower shaft with a "dead blow" (heavy rubber hammer) type hammer so as to not damage the end of the shaft. If you do not have this type of hammer use a sturdy block of wood against the shaft and hit on the wood with a regular hammer. Blower fan should then pop off. For renting a wheel puller...look in the yellow pages of your phone book under Eguipment Rental or Rental stores.

Kenmore 80 electric dryer fan mounting

You need a blade puller.

It is a tool that grips the fan blade from behind, and as you turn the screw that sits at the end of the shaft it pulls the fan off the shaft.

Never hit the end of the shaft with a hammer, as it can mushroom the shaft end, an prevent the fan from coming off.

You can get a puller from most HVAC supply houses, and sometimes at Hardware stores.

Its similar to a steering wheel puller.

Blower moter fan

Before attempting to remove blower, run the motor and note the direction of rotation. The blower wheel can be very difficult to remove. It is screwed on to the motor shaft opposite to the motor rotation such that every time the motor starts, the blower wheel gets tighter. The best way to remove, is to put an adjustable wrench on the blower wheel (from the motor side) and using another wrench or locking pliers on the side of the motor shaft where the belt goes. Rotate the motor shaft where the belt goes, in the opposite direction of normal rotation while holding the wrench on the blower wheel. It will be VERY TIGHT. If unsuccessful, the only alternative is to strike the blower wheel REALLY hard and break it off. GOOD LUCK!

If you need further assistance, let me know
