In relation to my other recent thread entitled "Vespa 152L2 1959 - bent/misaligned crankshaft assembly?", can you please give me some advice on a suitable crankshaft puller tool?
I was going to use a few thick washers and the clutch basket nut to pull the crankshaft through the bearing. But the thread form on the end of the crankshaft, clutch side, is a bit worn and I'd prefer to use it as little as possible. So I was hoping for once to connect the puller and a second time for the the clutch nut.
So with this in mind can you recommend a suitable puller?
I had thought about a simple coupling nut and then a suitable length of threaded bar but what's the crankshaft thread on the clutch side? Is it M12 x 1.5 or M12 x 1.75 ? Do suitable coupling nuts exist? Or is there an enomonical puller designed specifically for this job?
Your help and advice, as always. much appreciated.
