So I was trying to pop my primary off. It was on tight even used a four-foot bar to gain leverage. When I thought I was at the point of breaking it I thought about my old school days of using a rubber mallet to hit the clutch tool. Yep it worked.

What old school reach around do you have?

Another one I have is when the ski carbide is rusted on just tighten it until the bolt breaks.

I'd avoid hitting the clutch puller directly with anything, you can damage the bearings on the crank. Better to try some heat but not too much on the inside of the stationary sheave and then tap the clutch sheaves while the puller is preloaded. The water trick works well to.

You mean to loosen it till the bolt breaks...you can damage the plastic ski by pulling the bolt through it if the bolt does tighten.

Pump some grease in there before you thread the clutch puller into the clutch and that adds some hydraulic pressure/force also...

Tighten as much as possible and dump a pot of boiling water on it. Pops right off!

a trick i have used for years for grip install is compressed air. get the nozzle tip right by the grip bar junction and blast that baby right off and right back on. no lube required.

some grease will have no hydraulic effect at all - needs to get rid of most all the air then

I didn't have access to compressed air, so I used wd-40 to get grips off, then wash/"lube" with gasolin to get them on and have them stay put

use a old seal beam 12v head light bulb to perform a load test on electrical circuits. instead of a ohm test. most thing's need a load to find the problem.
