Secondary clutch removal

Having trouble removing the secondary clutch, got nut off, will not slide off, have tried wd-40, any ideas such as where to pound, how big of a hammer etc. Thinking of taking side off and using a gear puller, side needs to come off for another reason. It is a 1985 Bravo. Thanks Cam

You can try putting the sled on it's side and using a good penetrating lubricant like PB Blaster and let it sit for a day or so. When they are rusted on, it's hard to get 'em off without damage.

Try what Dan said and if that doesn't work try running the sled a bit with the bolt out. Don't race it but drive around or put it on a jack stand and rev it up some so the clutches shift. The WD you have in there will help and the vibrations from the sled running and shifting of the clutches should work it loose. You shouldn't have to worry about the clutch flying off as it centers itself on the shaft by the primary but it is a keyed shaft as well.

I had it soaking in wd-40, it can not be run, it's apart. Needs some welding on frame so took the side off, had a puller that fit. Put some pressure on, left it on, then quit as I thought something might break. I was putting tools away (pleased I had quit while ahead) then going to check forum for suggestions and I heard a pop and it was off. Didn't realize that those openings could be used for a puller, (maybe that's what there are for?) worked for me and now I am a lot wiser and happier. Thanks for the suggestions Cam

Just when I thought I had it done. How does this "seat, secondary spring" come off? Should it just slide off? It seems stuck also, I have applied the wd-40, now any suggestions before force is applied. Do I go with the gear puller again? Thanks for any help. Cam

Well it's done, turned out the seat is on with a left hand thread, a couple of wac's with the hammer, brass, off it came. I hope that this information may help others, and thanks for the advice given. Rest assured I will have more questions as I try to rebuild this Bravo short to the best it can be.
