hello duders. since the water trick works so well on the newer sleds i was wondering if it might work on the older tundras. i have a couple 1998 277s that are stock and might work on the clutches one day and i was wondering if the water trick might work on these sleds. i also have an uncle with even older tundras and since i was at i might as well ask about those clutches too.

thanks

dave

The "water trick" typically refers to removing the TRA clutch with hydraulic pressure and the original mounting bolt . The square shaft and power bloc clutches have a larger diameter thread in the inner clutch half , requiring a larger bolt to establish the seal and pressure .

Here is the text from a PM I recently got from LB who was struggling with a stubborn 250 clutch :

Tom I froze the sucker off. Read all about it, never believed it would ever work for me. After being unable to pop the square shaft clutch with a 5/8" UNC bolt (not UNF in my case for whatever reason) and a steel rod, I decided to give it a shot. Filled it with water at lunch hour, put some grease on my bolt, threaded it in 1/2" or so till it locked and tossed it out by the door. Came home supper time and the clutch was sitting on the ground next to the engine. Amazing.

thanks for the info! tired the water trick on my 800 etec and its super easy. never thought of freezing it but i guess that could work well aslong as you got a way to melt the ice later.
