thru shaft removal

What is the best way to remove the thru shaft? Do you have to remove the transmission?

You have too remove all your clutches, and you might need the special tool tool to remove the back half of the sheave. Then remove the back half of the CVT cover. After that remove the four bolts holding the trans together and separate it from the motor. Then you Can remove the three bolts that hold the oil seal in on each side. Once you have done that the through shaft will slide out.

hey thunderusone go to homedepot or a bolt place and just buy a 14mm x 1.5 about 5 inches long with about 3 inches of thread and slide a 10mm bolt about 3 to 3 1/2 inches long with the head cut off in before the 14mm bolt and tighten the 14mm down. it should pop right off. and then after your done with the new thrushaft your going to need a 8mm x 1.25 about 2 1/2 to 3" long to screw into the secondary to spread it apart to allow for the belt reinstall.

I finally got a chance to work on the conversion tonight for a few hours. Here are some pics of my headway. I used a 14MM X 1.5MM X 60MM with a piece of 3/8 steel rod 87MM long. I put the rod inside the primary shaft then put the 14MM bolt in and bumped it with the impact to remove the primary. You will also need the 8mm X 1.25MM X 75MM to put the belt back on the secondary upon reassembly. Once the CVT was off, I could remove the transmission. I used my rolling engine crane to hold the engine up at eye level to grind the case. I used black automotive touch up paint to mark the new shaft and then insert the shaft from the back with the front bearing, retainer, and seal installed on the engine. Where ever it touched, I ground lightly with one of my small porting bits on a 90 degree angle die grinder. I removed a little bit of material at a time. Each time I removed material, I would re-mark the shaft with fresh paint and do it again. I did this multiple times and it worked out perfect. It fits like a glove and I did not go through the oil passages. I used an led headlight on my head to light up the inside of the case while I was cutting. Thanks so much to Bscottking21 and Qwkrhino for steering me in the right direction!
