  • Shovelhead crank removal

    To make a long story short, the ram on my press blew a seal and the parts will not be here for a few weeks. I have the cases split to the point of pressing the crank out of the left case, but without a press it's going to be a little hard. Does anyone know of a different way of removing the crank besides using a press?

    set a hardwood block on the floor/ground,turn the crankcase over so the side You need pressed out is pointing downwards,now with a kind of a drop/slam motion force the end of the crankshaft into the block of wood,repeat as many times as needed,within several slams You should be able to tell there is more clearance between the bearings.

          It will be. There are just so many layers of paint on the cases that this is the only way to do it right.

            The hardwood on the floor and lightly dropping the crank onto it worked great. 3 small impacts, and it came right out. Thanks again.

              You should have taken baby pictures as reference to others.

                I can still do that. I'll take some pictures tomorrow to show the procedure. It was pretty slick.

                        Staying with the Shovel. I really didn't do anything to the engine besides clean and paint. I figure it ran beforehand, so it should run now. LOL.
