Default How to remove pinion gears from clutch bell???

Hi,

Can some one share ideas on how to remove the pinion gears from the below types of clutch bell without using those specialised and expensive tools.

1. centax clutch like the mugen mtx2 pro spec.

2. centrifugal clutch like the serpent or koysho cars.

Thanks in advance.....

for Mugen power clutch -

Take clutchbell of
-pop the inside bearing out
-find a bolt or something round close to the inside diameter of the clutchbell
- wrap the bolt in masking tape till its a neat fit in the clutchbell
- with the clutchbell on the bolt drill through the little adjusting hole with small drill bit
- put a small allen key in the hole to hold it in place
- put a cloth over the pinnions ( doubled over few times )
- then grab the pinnion with pliers or multi grips and undo

Works great, easy pinnion tool for free

muggen,

Hey, that's a good one. Now I need to get hold of drill station or a clamp device to hold the bell in place for drilling.

Cheers....

I would suggest you to get the Mugen Pinion Removal Tool, it works really really good and it will not damage the pinion and the best part is it works on almost all types of centex clutch bell. In fact I know it works with mugen, Kawahara, serpent..

Ah10 is right...in the long run a pinnion removal tool will pay for itself with the gears you don't have to throw away!!!
