 Those were "pull dowels " which have a thread in them for extraction from a blind hole .They were only ones I could find at the time .

A lot of this home grown stuff is experimentation .Usually it works after a few minor adjustments . ;)

Problem with a screw on clutch is they get tight as a mouses ear .What ever you use often times has to be able to with stand some impact because it often takes a mighty wack with a hammer to get it broke loose .

You can take a chance and thump them on the clutch spinder with a brass rod and a ball peen but you take the change of doing harm to the crank shaft stub end . Not good .

Some very crude tools I have made up.  No lathe here so nothing very fancy.  Borrowed a buddies wire feed welder (I never welded before) to make the partner oiler gear remover gizmo in the back.  It's made from a 1/2-3/8" NPT adapter and various pieces shown on the second photo.  The threads on the 1/2" end are 14TPI which matches the oiler gear, but it's a little too large in diameter.  Just shove a small piece of string or rag on the threads to keep things tight.

Flywheel pullers on the left (minus the screws/washers needed) and clutch removal tools on the right that are used gently with an impact wrench.

Solo 665-681 Clutch tool.  Everybody has a bunch of old spark plug sockets in their toolbox.  I used a Dremel and a 1" cutoff wheel to cut out every other face about 3/8" - 7/16" deep.  10-15 min.  Done.  I think it will work on Dol/Mak 6400-7900 too.  Will have to check.

That brings up another little trick .On some Stihl clutchs with a little nut like projection the champfer on a 6 point socket just will not gain enough "purchase " on the nut .Simple fix ,belt sand the champfer out of the socket until it's straight smooth .

Just throwing this out there. Dolmar 166 flywheel removal tool.

I found out that the POLY flywheel removal tool for the stihl 066 660 will work. It is the same threads as the dolmar 166 flywheel since I owned both saws.   ;)
