    I'm having difficulty removing the blade adapter from a Toro model 22040. How do I get the adapter off the crankshaft without damaging it?

    Go to your local auto parts chain store and see if they have a two finger puller for loan as many do.

    And, Don't forget to give it a shot of Fluid Film first...:)
