I heard an old trick on time that if you can find a bold that will thread into the puller threads, you could pack the inside full of grease and then tighten the bolt up to the grease and it would basically Hydraulically press itself off. I've never tried it but as long as the threads seal the grease inside, it should work.

works every time ;) 1$ clutch puller [:D]

water, oil, grease, doesn't really matter. as long as the you use some thread sealer.

but be careful, the clutch comes off with a bang[thumb]

if your gonna be taking it off here and there. a puller is not a bad investment. check shadetree as mentioned or dennis kirk or i got mine from HPE (high performance engeneering). they are usually under $50

make sure you buy the correct one for your clutch/sled combination.There are probably 50 different clutch pullers for all years of sleds. DONT want to "bugger" up the threads in the clutch. DONT NOT beat,heat,bang or try to pry off. Your justing asking for busted clutch,crank bearing issues,etc......$50 now will save you $500 later.....
