    A physically large guy meets a woman at a bar, and after a number of drinks, they agree to go back to his place.
    As they are making out in the bedroom, ready for the act, he stands up and starts to undress. After he takes his shirt off, he flexes his muscular arms and says, "See there, baby? That's 1000 pounds of Dynamite!"
    She begins to drool. The man drops his pants, strikes a bodybuilder's pose, and says, referring to his bulging legs, "See those, baby? That's 1000 pounds of dynamite!" She is aching for action at this point.
    Finally, he drops his underpants, and she grabs her purse and runs screaming to the front door.
    He catches her before she is able to run out the door, and asks, "Why are you in such a hurry to leave?"
    She replies, "With 2000 pounds of dynamite, and such a short fuse, I was afraid you were about to blow the clutch.

    NEWS FLASH!!!! The crank ain't broke!!
    From what I can see, the only part broken is the powdered metal spacer/button. How he managed to break that, I ain't got a clue!! You can try soakin thru the bolt hole and using Slappers technique. Good luck

    You could be right Fish. If the OP would post a pic of the back side of the flange bushing we'd certainly have an answer. There doesn't appear to be any threads in the broken off portion so it's likely not the crank we are seeing.

    He is about 6', gained a little [lot] of weight and looks like me!

    I think fish got it, I thought I twisted the end off the crank too! I got disgusted and said f it and posted. In case you are interested, I used a 16" klien spud and a 2' cheater bar standing on it. The back end was secured with an aluminum pipe wrench. Some times you gotta do what you got to do.
    Hindsight is clear, a crankshaft would not be hollow, but it could be threaded, which is was not, I was stymied.


    I will try and dig that spacer thing out tomorrow using slappers info.
    Thanks!

    News Flash is right, I really could care less. I'm just looking at a picture and making a guess. After reading the same question's over and over again, It's nice to read or see some different picture's every once in a while.

    1. I handed out 1 billion flyer's, how many phone calls can I expect?
    2. I sprayed my whole yard with round-up, why is the grass dying?
    3. How much to cut this cemetery, It's got 9000 tombstones?
    4. Is this truck a good deal? (craigslist link)
    5. How do you handle yards full of dog crap?
    6. Customer wont pay. Now what?
    7. To get new customer's I'm offer a $9.99 special. Is this lowballiing?
    8. How should I arrange my new 16' trailer?
    9. Who's working this holiday?
    Then there's my favorite- grass cutter's giving tax advice.

    I'm sorry guy's. It's been a long winter.

    Ya think I got it? C'mon man, this ain't my first rodeo!

    Anyways, you don't need to get that stub out! Screw the crank bolt in and pry out on the clutch assy while banging on the bolt. You did soak it down , right? After the clutch is off you can tap the stub out.
