Help! anyone know how to remove? I took the center bolt out, but not sure if I should pry on it or not. Went out today, Toro 500 series, 550 hours / 3 months out of warranty...Thanks!!

If it's bad put a pry bar on one side and while holding pressure tap the other side with a hammer. Install the new one with some type of anti-seize lube.

Yes if it is junk take some high heat to it and pull-pry evenly till it comes off. Just becareful not to get the lower engine seal hot or you will have opened a can of worms for yourself! I had one that went out last year and we had one hell of a time getting it off. If all else fails CAREFULLY torch it of or junks of it then hit hard with a chisel and hammer.............wear safetyglasses!

Just FYI- I am no expert but I thought my clutch was bad so I took it to my dealer and he looked at it and said it was ok an I must had a bad spindle on the deck. That was the problem. Just a thought for you to check if you have not.
