My connecting rod loves my crank pin so much they decided to get a little closer in their relationship. So close, that they have created an unholy union. Anyway, i have the crank assembly out on my work bench. I'm getting ready to take it to a friends shop with a press. Here is my question, lookin at the crank pin, i dont see how I am suppose to push it out, it doesnt look like it will clear the crankshaft in either direction.... there are machined cut out on the crank about a half inch out but not far enuf out that the pin could be pushed far enuf to allow sepearation. Obviously, it will. Im just not seeing it. I just want some imput before i start heaping tons of pressure on it. The pin is solid on one side and on the other there is this little cap thing in the middle of it. Anybody here ever split their crank apart? Which way did you push it.
