You can make up a puller plate that has L pieces mounted to both sides above the intakes and exhaust openings . Use the intake and exhaust openings to hold the plate down and use the pusher bolts as normal . First you need to pound the cylinder back down as if its cocked on the studs it will not come off .

That's an interesting thought. But I was also thinking about mounting a piece of angle iron on the exhaust and intake studs, using a hammer drill or air hammer against that to run. The cylinder either up or down. That bit adapter that Jeff used on his hammer drill looked really weird, not real sure what that was, but if I can find the adapter, it's worth a shot to try it.

Hey, I see you are in Lancaster. You're almost a neighbor. I live about 12 miles east of Hamburg, Pa, not far from Cabellas there.

Well the hammer drill did not work worth a darn. Couldn't even hammer the right side back to its original place, which I did the old fashioned way with a hammer and a 2x4. It's level again, so at least one side moves. Anyone have puller plate I can borrow. Guessing I can make the L brackets, or I will try more of the old fashioned way, turn the bike upside down/sideways and hammer with a board.

The adapter was a hilti bit adapter for the Black and Decker hammer drill. My GT750 was the ONLY time it didn't work but after breaking the block loose with the plate method, then having to continue to use the plate until the block was nearly all the way off, I understand now how tough they are to remove!!

If you don't mind a little drive, I have the plate/bolts/nuts that you could borrow to get it off. I'm near Annapolis and could meet you halfway to save you some driving.

PM me and let me know...and leave me your cell and I'll leave you mine.

Anyone selling a puller plate? I purely suck at drill and tap. I can take the instructions and pictures to a machine shop but I'd rather just buy one someone has used and doesn't need now. -Eric

I'm about to disassemble my engine. I'm not sure if I need the plate. What is the best way to get the head off and then the barrel?

If the engine has never been apart or its left out in the weather you will most likely need a puller plate. Remove the head bolts first and look to see how dry and rusty down in the 11 stud holes are.

The engine was assembled from a basket case in 2010. It is used in an A modified autocross chassis with a Comet CVT clutch. I ran it for one race and haven't run it since. It has been stored indoors since it was assembled.

Since it was apart when I bought it I have no idea how much effort it will take to get the head loose from the cylinder (I am thinking I can start with a puddy knife and break it lose). I want to be sure of how to go at it before I ruin the gasket surfaces.

Do I need to get a 2x4 and smack it with a hammer to get the barrels to loosen?

I've worked on air cooled 4 stroke engines and things usually came lose pretty easy.

After seeing your comment that the engine was apart in 2010 it just may come apart a bit easier than we first feared . Your thought of the 2x4 and a bfh just may get the cylinder loose :up: . If you could post up a picture of what your setup is would be interesting .

I was able to get the cylinders off the case. One stud had started to rust enough to hold things in place. I started with a puddy knife around the base gasket and worked side to side. The right side move easily once enough of the gasket seal was broken. The stud that resisted was nearest to the starter on the right. Then I stacked two puddy knives once I had a large enough gap. I just kept wedging whatever I had on hand until it raised enough to break free (along with a decent hammer and a 2x4).

Removing GT 750 Cylinder Barrels is easy and Suzuki bike makes it even more easier.

There are a few on this list that may disagree with that comment :shock:
