Re: Clutch drum removal ?

Thank for all the advice, everyone. I finally got back out for a visit and swapped the clutch drum. I used a punch and hammer in the slots designed for that, and it came off after half a dozen raps. Did not need the rope in the piston. I did not need to replace the oiler gear.

I put some grease on the bearing and wiped a bit on the bore of the clutch drum and on the crankshaft, put it all back together and cut some wood right off the bat to tighten things up. Everything went as expected, and it's working fine. I showed the owner how to do it while I was at it, so he can replace the rim sprocket next time it's needed. (Owner's son is a bit hard on saws, and likes to keep cutting with a dull chain, so he puts wear on things faster than might otherwise be expected. I've given him a few sharpening lessons, but the need for it doesn't seem to have sunken in yet.)
