If the OP managed to pull the circlip holding the assembly out using the clutch removal tool I do not want to arm wrestle them! If this is the case you could try to cut a new groove for the circlip using a Dremel and reinstall the assembly and start over, the pressure plate is toast anyway. May work.

Yeah, I see it now.

So that picture of an alternate puller is the best idea.

You could use some steel flat bar to make extensions so you could bolt them to the case, and then use bolts with nuts at top (or weld the nuts to the bar stock) to do the same as threaded rod would do. You could even use metric bolts for the top part where you will be clamping it down.

The mother of all inventions hasn't even been thought of yet, so always keep the mind open to improvising

When i started to pull in apart i noticed there was a crack in the plate (as in IXL2Relax's pic #18) so had a bad feeling about it then. You can still see the crack now.
My own fault all of it obviously, but never noticed the foot part of my puller is not close enough to the hub, so it's not pressing the spring at the right spot
I have ordered the replacement bits but still have to find the right puller to reassemble.
I'll remove clutch and rotor and have a think about it.
And yep Wedge, i'm going to have to improvise!

I think this is one of the reasons some have said the motion pro compression tool works the best.

There are lots of different ideas here in the tools section of the pedia on clutch tools if you get in a bind.
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...k:ref:tools115

The Motion Pro / Energy One tool is nice. I have the Energy One version.
But you can always improvise when installing the new one if needed.

Here is the OP's picture again:



The very top of the center of the pressure plate has been ripped out - Presumably, when the release tool was tightened down, it pulled that part right off the pressure plate as it pulled the release assembly right out...

Is that yours? That has to be the best one I have seen. A longer crossbar to the case bolts would work with this one too. It sure looks like there is more room to get to the clip than on any others I have seen.

The spanner idea does look good but it looks to press where my puller does, quite a distance from the hub.
The foot i.d. on mine measures 3.1/4". Can anyone with motion pro/energy one type measure theirs?

No that's XLF member daytonasportster's pic.
Pretty cool though!

That pedia link I gave has a compilation of the different types of tools we've found on the forum.
