I made puller to remove the large pulley at the end of the auger shaft on a older ariens tear drop. I first tried prying it off but it was fairly well rusted on. The problem then was to find something thin yet strong to get under the pulley hub. The picture pretty wells explains it. The cross pieces are from an old 3 ton rachet jack that I cut into three 16" pieces. I used two pieces of 1.5" x 3/8 x approx. 7" long stock for the cross pieces with 3 -3/8" holes drilled in each piece . I used a 1/2 " machine bolt and nut as a center turn part. I hammered on this to vibarate auger shaft often as I screwed down the bolt, using a small hammer. The penetrating oil and vibartions helped a lot.
