    Autozone rents them. I rented one 9 months ago and kept it because I seem to use it about every 6 weeks. I use an impact wrench on it though.

    yeah that's the one i used that worked well! as you suck up the tension the puller has no where to go but to tighten around the pulley! the lisle one only grips one side so as you tighten it it wants to twist to the open side :mad:

    I made mine with some old u-bolts/nuts and a little time with my welder. It is fashioned after the Auto Zone rental style and works perfect everytime. I have used it at least 15 times in the last year with no issues

    A warning. I bought a pulley puller from checkers, but it does not reinstall the pulley...what good is that? It cost around $25, and can pull the pulley off, just not reinstall it. If you buy one, make sure to check the specs!

    I went to advanced auto to rent/use one(had the pumps with me) and ended up buying one. Very nice set, has laminated flip chart that tells you how and which one to use. IIRC it was $30-$35. Only have used it once for a buddies truck. It will re-install the pulley aswell.

    The two clam shells have different diameter holes for use on different pullies.

    I'll post the brand tomorrow, if I remember :rolleyes:

    I bought one of those cheap $20 Chines ones, and the arms that lock around the pully are made of cheap pot metal poured into a mold. When I tried to use it, the 90 degree lip of the arm that locks onto the pully just peeled away like butter. I went to NAPA auto, and bought an American made one for $55, which has arms that are made of cold stamped steel, and it pulled the pully off like it was not even there.

    sunday puller...

    I was in a bind on a sunday once,needed to swap a P/S pulley on a pump so I could drive to work the next day--and had no puller,or any way to get or borrow one...in desparation I tack welded a 1/2" nut to the pulley,and screwed a 1/2" bolt in--came off like nothing!--the pump shaft had a threaded hole in its center,so I used a bolt,flat washer and a nut to draw the pulley back on...I ended up leaving the nut on the pulley--wasn't in the way of anything,didn't seem to bother it none..ghetto,but it worked!..I've used the same trick to get stubborn pulleys off lawn tractor engines and mower decks too.. :crazy:
