    Default Help ! Need Gear Puller for B Box (Drive Gear)

    Looking for someone that would lend or sell me a rotax M28 x 1 gear puller. I really don't want to spend $175 on a tool that I probably would only use once. I did try to use standard gear pullers with no success. Tried all the tricks.. heating gear etc. This buggers on tight.

    I'm in the ATL area.

    Thanks !

    Update: After hours of combing the web, I discovered this. LEAF used a tool in one of their videos that I noticed wasn't one of the Rotax produced tools. Apparently they do not produce their version anymore, however I was able to find this:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    almost identical to the tool used in the video (correct thread and pitch size). I would just need a small metal button to use as a pressure point on the end of the shaft and to cover the bolt hole.

    Hope this will fill in the gaps for any other newbies just getting into the older kitfox/rotax world like me.

    I will report back with success or failures
