Pinion gear puller for 50-65cc Benelli

Robert Formisano /

Hi, does anyone have a pinion gear puller for a 50cc Benelli? I have Benelli Dynamo but is the same motor as used in the Riverside. Gear is about 31mm in diameter. I found a picture of the needed tool on a great thread in these forums. Picture is attached. PM me if you can help. Thanks very much!

looks like a ford power steering gear puller. check with your local auto zone or whatever they should be able to loan you one

That was a great suggestion and got me thinking. I tried to rent the puller but the tool is too short to reach behind the pinion gear and press off. But doubling the cups allowed me to do what i needed done. I bought two pullers for about $50 off of Amazon and welded the cups together. Added some thin aluminum shims to press the cups tight against the pinion gear and it pulled off beautifully. There was no way to remove this pinion gear without some type of puller like this. Since the original tool is now made of "unobtanium", this fabricated puller is easy to make and readily available. Thanks for the suggestion!

The four aluminum shims go one each behind each cup and between the cup and the holder.

It's super tight but I got mine off with a puller that gets behind it and there is 2 long bolts that thread into it and then another bolt that presses against shaft
