Does he make them only for you or does he sell them? I would buy one! His sticker says 'BV Machine' does he have a web site?

I had a bar that has 2 studs in it (came with saw from Nova Scotia)  for doing 166 clutches till Al made me the tool.

Al made me one that I could adjust the pins.

Red neck engineering on display....one vid was a home made tool for a clutch with two weights, the other a bought tool for 3 (372's) Pretty simple stuff. Also in the second video simple flywheel removal tool/technic and case splitting tool. Second video has a more "stubborn" clutch. Socket's or clutch tools, air impact wrench and a rag brought to bear.

Home made clutch removal tool made on the fly for a 455....in this vid somewhere

Breaking down cases to replace main bearings is what this is about. Removing 372 clutches & flywheels the red neck way in here somewhere as well.

I had a Stihl 660 in here that I could NOT get the clutch off of, in fact when trying to do so I slipped and buried the top tooth of the inner dog about an inch into my left forearm. Well after a trip to the doc for 12 stitches I was back at the shop and the 660 was on my bench with my blood on its' face laughing at me.

So I thought about it for a while and decided to try a little reverse psychology on the smart azz bazturd. I put my rope back in the jug so it was blocked from turning anticlockwise, then I used a rattle wrench and gave it about three or four burps to tighten it up, then re blocked the piston, and one burp and the clutch was off. Very old trick I learned from a tractor mechanic when I was a kid

I miss placed my poulan clutch tool and went looking for something else to use and in my auto brake tools had a tool for running the "ratcheting" rear disc brake cylinder shafts back in for pad swaps.....it's a square with 6 different 2 prong setups and hollow with each face accepting 3/8" drive tools....worked great!
