Re: Clutch tools and flyweel removal tools

Some of the Stihl clutchs can be a bear to get a socket on .Not much "nut" sticking out .

A standard socket has a tiny bit of taper on the end and as such doesn't gain purchase on the nut .My hillbilly fix is to chuck up a black iron socket which I have by the buckets full and trim the end down in the lathe .You have to use carbide because the socket is made of heat treated 4140 steel and is hard as nine miles of bad road .

I suppose if nothing else you could use a belt sander and get the same effect .
