Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have an old (25-30 years) JC Penney tiller. The rubber has come off the drive pulley. It should be sort of like the rubber drive on the Snapper mower. There is a pulley used for connecting to the tines on the outside of this drive pulley. I can't get either off using a puller. I wondered if there was some way that the fine threaded bolt used to go though the bearing was the way to get it off--by using a longer fine threaded bolt that would push against theshaft on the insider and push the pully off by tigthening that bolt. When I try to use a puller, it just bends the pulley on the outside in the three places where the puller puts pressure.

    I agree that this is the best way to get the thing off. I am doing some checking as to the possibility of ever finding the part needed for this old tiller, so I am going to leave it sitting until I can find a part.
    Thanks for your help.

The way to get old stuff like that off is this....
Use a torch... oxy-actelelyene if possible but a small map gas torch will work, just takes longer....
heat the hub of the pulley but not the shaft till it glows red if possible... the hotter the better...of course not melting it..
Then walk away from the thing and let it cool down... then if possible turn it with the shaft up and soak it down with PB Blaster or another good quality penetrating spray....then let it soak in for 24 hours...
Then take a large pin or bar and a big hammer and rap the hub towards the outside of the shaft,,,if you have already swelled the shaft, you may have to file it down so the pulley can come off...a few raps with the hammer and the pulley will start to move...then lubricate ahead of it as you hammer it off the shaft....
You could also apply some pressure with the puller before you rap on the backside... any and all pressure will help...

I have used this method to remove pulleys from fans used in pig barns many times and is the best way I have found to remove them...patience is the key...
