Default Torque Converter

Hey Everybody,

I am trying to remove this part of the torque converter. Any suggestions on the best way to get it off. I want to replace it after painting the dinosaur.

Pic is not that good, Is that silver piece screwed on (2nd pic)? Looks like you can take a crescent wrench and unscrew it.

Here is another pick. There is a snap ring & my small basic tool cant get it off. Also. It looks like a key insert is there.

If the silver part doesn't unbolt try to remove the snap ring under it, then it might slide off, that's my best guess, there are guys on here that should know exactly how to remove it. Might want to wait for them.

Should be able to carefully pry the snap ring off with a flat head screw driver.... Just make sure you wear safety glasses... It'll take your eye out for sure...

How about taking the nut off the other side and sliding the whole axle out?

I was going to stay to get snap ring pliers, but the snap ring doesn't hold the driven unit on, does it? It just holds the driven unit together, right?

WHAT?

he wants to remove the driven pulley, not disassemble it..

penetrating oil and a rubber mallet and it'll be off the shaft within just a few days of patiently waiting for the oil to soak in

'sid

PS in case I'm wrong and you ant to disassemble it..
reattach a nut and release the snap ring, that way the cam doesn't jump off.
take care at reassmbling since the spring needs to be preloaded correctly.

Yes, I just want to remove the whole assembly-its old abd worn. I will replace it with a new one. The bolt will not slide out so I may try the penetrating oil & mallet

---------- Post added at 09:45 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:02 AM ----------

I assume its operable. I am now curious if I can find a replacement part if I do remoce it.

old and worn is correct; but it can surely be revived with a bit of elbow grease
(better than a new one IMHO!)

Anyways, sure replacements can be found at mfgsupply.com for example
https://www.mfgsupply.com/gomini/gom...q30driven.html

you'd also find the replacement parts there if you need some:
https://www.mfgsupply.com/gomini/gom...ivenparts.html

just saying

'sid

PS good penetrating oil (NOT ordinary WD40!! but pb blaster or WD40 specialist penetrant)
some mild heat from a heat gun to speed things up
and if you get impatient,
some tapping with a mallet against the face of the jackshaft,
if all you have is a hammer, reengage a nut a few threads to prevent the shaft from mushrooming out or ruining the threads.
No violence though

If you can get it off, you might could get a brand new set from eBay for about $60 shipped. It would be all of it: both pulleys, backplate, and belt. Just a suggestion
