Default Re: Removing an EZGO clutch

New to the forum. I have posted this question on two others but they don't seem as detailed as this groups forum. I have a 1995 EZGO with a 295. I am in the middle of an engine replacement, bored 295 from Motors and More, and have the engine out. I am down to removing the clutch. The folks I bought the motor from loaned me a puller so I have the handled. The problem I am having is removing the center bolt to start with. I have sprayed some penetrating oil on it and in what appears to be whole to either vent moisture or use for lubricating. Hope I have not done damage with the oil. I can not seem to break the bolt loose. I don't have an impact wrench. Any suggestions?

Have someone hold the clutch and use a breaker bar? When I don't have an impact wrench or breaker bar handy, I slide a piece of pipe over the handle of another ratchet and use it for more leverage.

The threads are not reversed, right-tight, left-loose. The bolt your trying to get out is around 6" long and threads into the crank, oil is probably not going to reach the threads to help. Most people who work on these use impacts to install that bolt, sometimes its near impossible to remove the clutch without one.

Thanks. I'll take it by a local shop this week. Know a guy that should be able to help out. Reinstall on the new motor with a normal (not impact) wrench? Need to torque it and if so do yo know the ft lbs? Thanks again!

I was told to just tighten it as tight as possible with a normal ratchet. That is what I did and I have had no problems thus far.

With the right tools most things are a lot easier. The clutch bolt and clutch came off easily with an impact wrench. No on to the reinstall. Thanks!!!!!!!!

Wish I had been more prepared. Liked your makeshift puller idea, but just spent hours searching for a 3/4" fine thread bolt to no avail. I guess I'll have to place a McMaster order. Anyone have any suggestions for pulling the flywheel without a puller? Steve.
