How do I get the Crankshaft & Conrod Assy out of the Bottom Engine Case?
Posted July 09, 2013 - 02:43 AM
I am parting out a 1999 WR400 and are currently pulling the bottom end of the engine apart.
I got the Engine Case away from the Crankshaft on one side but on the other side it is real hard to get off.
It may be a pressure fit in to the bearing so before I destroy something I thought I should ask the experts.
Does anyone have any tricks for getting the Crankshaft out of the bottom engine case bearings?
Do I need a Press to push it out?

At least I know I am on the right track now so will give it a better go this time.

Just don't damage the anything in the process. If it's being a prick- hold a piece of hard wood against the crankshaft whilst tapping it out with a hammer.
