Have you tried a small compressed air powered impact hammer?

I would also pound on it with a heavy mallet and use plenty of PB Blaster.

Hi Eric

 

Thanks a lot for your information. I’m currently working on it by pushing with your concept and at the same time pulling with a puller on the other side.

But still very tough job. I managed to move it 1mm but still no big progress. Will work on it mm by mm  (4/100 inch).

 

Why you used threaded rod instead of new bolts with same size?

 

Best regards

Hi Ruedi,

Yes, you must cut the existing bolts.

You use threaded rod and nylocks to replace the bolts.

When you have the disk off , have a machine shop cut a few thousands of an inch off  the interior of the dick mounting hole.

I hope these pictures help.

Hi Amelias and Eric

 

I tried to remove the Vetus coupling from the shaft and I was not able to remove it even not with a strong puller and heat.

Maybe someone out there has another great Idea?

 

@Eric, is saw in an old treat from 2019 you did it by pushing with screws/bolts from the back but I cannot undo the existing screw’s. I suppose you saw it away and used new 10mm bolts for the tool.

 

I’ll make some photos when I’m done and send it to the forum.

 

Thanks for advice and best regards

Hi,

Here is the photo. Once you have it apart have a machine shop open up the hole a few thousands of an inch.

today I tried to align the engine and the c-drive. unfortunately I was not able to remove the vetus coupling from the shaft, tried it also with a puller but without success.  Are there any tricks, special tools,... how this can be done? I remember Eric uploaded a foto showing the tool he made for that, but could not find it. any help welcome
