What way do you spin (the front clutch) in order to separate the front and rear sheaves?

if you are talking about the bolt that holds the front clutch on. it is left handed threads so you will have to turn it to the right to remove it and to the left to install it. do you have the puller. they have a puller that screws in with right handed threads that pulls the primary off.

It will only spin 1 way, out. Wont spin the other way if the sheaves are together.

Sorry if I was not clear. I meant to ask how to separate to two sheeves on the front clutch. I have the clutch sitting on my work bench, need to replace the rear sheave. I read the manual this morning and it shows using expensive tools from Kawasaki too spin the sheave off. Has anyone ever done this with out those tools?

And bye the way if you where wondering, this is a clutch off my Dads 650 Prairie.

I havent im sure you can make something where did you get the inside one i think i need to do the same and how much?

I believe the book says on the Brute that's got over 200 pounds of tork, so you will probably be getting the tool(s) and I believe its a left-handed thread. Never done it myself so let us know how it works out for you. Good luck!!

I'm pretty sure there was a post on here about that... and someone had made a tool to hold the sheaves in a vice while loosening/tightening...
