My clutch removal tools
WOW!!! Bought this tool 20 some years ago for like $30.00.

It is truely a great universal clutch remover tool. All brands.
Has 2 set of pins 1/4" x1/2" long and 3/16 x 1/4 long.
Either insert tool in pin holes in clutch hole or in gap between clutch shoes.
Works like a charm.
Also have made some out of 3/8" x 12" key stock. Drill ends for size pins you want and put a # 41 roller chain connector link in holes on other end to hook then together like a hinge.
Also works great and can cost as little as $5.00 . A very usefull tool for a bargain price. You can truely feel how tight it was and know you got it installed fairly tight. If not tight they can self loosen sometimes if you start a saw up without a bar and chain on.
I try not to do that unless the clutch has a keeper or nut to hold it on. If it comes loose it can fly A LONG ways!! Hopefully not right up your forehead!! Saw that happen once!!
