Do gear pullers come in different sizes?

You can use them to remove gears, pulleys, wheel hubs, all kinds of hard to remove parts. They come in several sizes and are inexpensive. Every garage should have three sizes of 3-jaw pullers in the drawer. Just like the tie rod tools, the center stud is threaded to do the hard work for you.

Is gear puller and bearing puller the same thing?

Gear and bearing pullers are simple tools that are designed for hundreds of applications. They are used to remove gears, bearings, sprockets, pulleys and other press fit items from shafts. As the name suggests, pullers pull gears and bearings from engines and equipment of all types.

How far does a pilot bearing go in?

If the pilot shaft extends only ¼ to 3/8 inch from the bellhousing flange, then the large-diameter bearing in the rearward location in the crankshaft is used. If the pilot extends ¾ to 1 inch beyond the bellhousing flange, then the smaller, deeper pilot bearing is used.

How is pilot bearing measured?

The best method to determine the correct pilot bearing position for your application is by using a straight edge or yard stick across the front of your transmission Bell housing and measure the distance that your transmission input shaft protrudes past the front of the bell housing.

What happens if your pilot bearing goes out?

When the pilot is failing, or has failed, the input shaft will be allowed to walk around causing it to go off centre. When this happens, the transmission input shaft will begin moving around inside the transmission causing the gears and synchronizers to be off centre resulting in the transmission popping out of gear.

What is the purpose of a pilot bushing?

The pilot bearing/bushing supports and centres the transmission input shaft and clutch disc. When the clutch is disengaged, the pilot bearing/bushing allows the flywheel to maintain engine RPM while the input shaft is slowing down and stopping.
