    He'll eventually loosen up, it's an age thing most of the time. Tpehak, you do such nice mods but, they're all wrong also, due to lack of beer !

    I do pray for you !

    So just a quick question for the experts, is this what you're supposed to find behind that pretty little cover on your xb? This is off a 99 cyclone I just picked up. I'm trying to figure out what's going on here....

    Well no, there was no cover on it. I was a little worried because you can see the needles in the bearing. I thought it was falling out. What is that cover called?

    Looks like the bearing walked out.

    Does this method work? It does put a lot of stress on the gearshafts etc using the puller and pusher but so much easier than splitting the cases. What are the dimensions of the pullers, if it works then I think it is easier to get one made than splitting the cases.

    The way his puller and pusher are designed, there isn't a whole lot of stress on the output shaft.

    The bearing isn't technically a "press-fit" on the shaft or case, so it's not that hard to move. On removal, his long handle is only hand tightened and pulled on. A slide hammer would be easy as well. On install, his plate supports itself against the shaft. Don't forget the snap ring!!!

    I would advise against any linear 'whacking' of the output shaft with a hammer for any reason. It's supported well, but you don't want to add any clearances that way

    you're going to need a hell of alot more than a socket that fits to do this job.
    moto hasn't been on this site in approx. 1-1/2 years but you can always ask him your assorted questions instead of flooding this thread with them.
    DO NOT use an air impact driver on this nut.
    you MUST lock the pulley with either a factory style device or something "home-made" mimicking same.
    threads are LEFT HAND THREAD meaning TURN RIGHT TO LOOSEN the nut.
    it's factory installed with red loctite meaning a bit of heat must be applied to the nut to break the bond.
    i have loaned both the locker tool and the socket with t-handle attached to several board members. deposit required.
