    Anyone have a good way to get the gear box shaft threw the clutch? I have the new gear box and all new bearings but the shaft is seized on the clutch. Any suggestions would be great.

    Take it to an auto parts store and ask them to press it out as you would a bearing, unless youi know someone with a press that would help you out, expect to pay a little bit if you have a parts store do it for you.

    Yea it is actully on the truck with the messed up spreader. The other guy said to go to the parts store and have it pressed off. Nothin comes off till the shaft and clutch are seperated. Any other ideas?

    i assume this is a v box spreader with a gas engine. if so, once i could not get the clutch off by heating up and trying to pull it off with a gear puller. i had to take a cutting torch and remove a section of the clutch. when i got down near the shaft, i used a saw zall and then finally a dremmel with a heavy cutting blade. i cut out a small section and it finally broke loose. now i anti seeze everything.
