So i have the right puller -- i cranked it in really really tight, and nothing -- i got scared so i stopped. My buddy said to crank it in real tight again then give it a few whacks with a hammer and it should pop off. Should i do this? any other tips. Thanks

Yeah you can hit the puller with a hammer. I've dont it lots of times before with no problems (but apparently it's bad for the crank[confused]). Also you can spray WD-40 on it I believe it helps too.

I couldn't get the one off my atv before and I don't know if this is bad but I tightened it and forgot about it and when I came back like an hour later I pulled on the wrench and it popped off.

Do not hit it with a hammer or use an impact unless you want to rebuild crank. The secret is to have a proper clutch holder. I get all clutches off 100% of time using hand tools. If I can find a picture I will post it.

However, you do not need to take clutch off to change spring.

Also if you pump a bunch of grease into the hole and put some thread tape on the puller the hydrolic pressure should pop it off without an issue.

Wedge a board inbetween the clutch cover and the belly pan so when you take the last bolt off it foesnt fly off with excessive force.

yes, but with the IQ clutch arrangment with the plastics, it makes for a very tight working area. I would take it off
