I am building my first puller but I am stuck... You guys know the rod on the back of the trans that holds the hitch on? Well, I can't get it off, so any tips? I tried tons of Kroil and hit it with a hammer, but just succeeded in flattening one side, and stopped to ask before I did more damage. Also my brake band fell off, so can I Epoxy it back on? So far I have tuned it up, converted it to hand clutch, and have designed my undercarriage, that my weights, wheelie bar, etc... will all be held onto. And more input would be great. Thanks!

You likely also made the rod "bulge" when hitting it hard with a hammer.
This has happened to almost all of us at some point or another.
Save yourself all the sweat. Cut it off at the tranny boss and drill it out on
one side like you would a broken bolt in a hole.
Then hammer it through and get a new rod. They are not too hard to find.
If sacrificing the rod is too drastic for you. Try heating the boss of the tranny
(to expand the metal) and try tapping it out.

Have you seen these? They are about an inch thick, I "bulged" it (I always called it "Mushrooming" I am probably going to try heating it up, but I don't want to damage the good side for fear of never getting it out.

Have I seen these? I own 25 or 27 (I forget) on each of my wheel horses.....lol

Be carefull on where you heat that tranny boss and for how long. There is a seal
around it to keep fluid from leaking out.

Ok, I wasn't trying to be a smartie. I got the hitch off (ended up cutting it of cause I don't need it) but I cant get the pin out... To day I tried heating it up, but that failed.

Ok, will do OAR. Can't wait till my first pull. I'm thinking about putting it back to foot clutch so I can plow snow in the winter.
