This bearing separator and gear puller set has worked for everthing I've come across so far, though I haven't pulled this particular one. I even rigged it up to press my flywheels out of the case.

Yes a bearing separator is the best thing to use on timken type bearings, has always worked for me.

Here is my new countershaft bearing setting tool. I cut it tonight to set the depth and install the countershaft bearing. I center drilled and tapped it to accept an extension OR just use it as a press tool. I shouldered it to set the depth correctly for the oiling channel

Are the Member galleries permanent? Is there a central gallery on this forum to store stuff like this?

Default Clutch Tool

During a recent clutch rebuild, I made up a rig like the one Hopper devised in the first post of this thread. Now that I'm through with the "tool" and have discarded it, I want to make a more permanent one like the commercial versions, but needless to say, I neglected to record the dimensions between the upper left and lower right 1/4-20 holes in the primary. I THINK I remember 10 1/8", but can't be sure. Does anyone happen to have that dimension or have the primary cover off and could get it for me? Also, I seem to recall that the center hole in the tool is not exactly in the center, but 5 1/2" from the upper left hole. Any help would be appreciated.
Rusty

THANKING YOU, PATRICK!!!!!!! I thought I did a thorough search of that thread.
Is this a great site, or what? I just got my '81 bobber on the road after almost a year.

PS: Any other over-60 Ironhead riders out there?
