    Hello,
    Just bought a junker Toro for parts. I tried to wrench this ? thing off removing the clutch and broke it off. There was no bolt on the end of the crank and I tried to wrench it. Stupid mistake, am I screwed?
    How do you get the clutch off?
    There is a key in the keyway.

    Thanks in advance, kenny.

    There is a key and a keyway I took a picture of that is visable and I had to downsize it.

    Well...that's different....
    Find a bolt and thread it into the crank...
    Bump it loose with an air hammer..

    Right on, Slapper. I'm having a real problem wrapping my mind around the wrenchin(and leverage) involved in twisting off the end of the crank.

    A little anti-seize goes a long way....

    To break the crank like that, how big was that wrench?!?!

    I'm on the same page...
    Just how was the crank secured on the other end...to allow enough torque..to snap the shaft.??
    That's some BigTime wrench bendin....

    Looks like the result of a 16 inch Cresent wrench and a 6 foot cheater. It doesn't take a big boy if the cheater is sufficiently long.
