Do I need the fancy crank puller tool, or can I use a short pipe, long bolt, couple of nuts and washers to pull the new crank into the bearing/engine case. I dont have the tool, and need to get this engine back together and running.
I always have the crank bearing surfaces polished so there is a slip fit between the crank and the main bearings. This ensures easy assembly and disassembly without a special tool.
There is a special Honda tool, but I don’t have one and have never used one.
And just to add, a small brake cylinder hone can be used to slip fit the bearings in just a few minutes.
