GT750 Block puller needed

Post by Willie »

I'm in the process of rebuilding the top end of my prized Buffalo and will be needing a puller to remove the block. Before making one myself, I thought it'd be a lot easier and maybe a little cheaper, if I could borrow one that someone has collecting dust but would get back when I'm finished with it.
That said, I'd greatly appreciate it if that someone would respond or PM me if they'd be willing to loan me their's. Of course, I'd be paying the postage to TN and back to your locale.

Thought I'd update this post in case anyone happens upon it and has one they'd sell or be willing to loan. I consider myself extremely lucky to have been able to remove my GT750's block last weekend without the need of a puller. Now, its time to pack it up and ship it out for plating. While gone and fwiw, I'm going to get busy on improving the front forks.

Congrats Willie! I haven’t had to cross that bridge yet and hope not too in my lifetime as my engine was rebuilt 4 years ago with not a whole lot of miles since. :( :oops:

Thanks. I don't mind admitting that I was dreading the whole process and extremely thankful and relieved when it came off without the struggle I expected. As for the front end, I plan on ordering RaceTech springs and their Gold Valve emulators within the next week or so.

^ you will love the linear Race Tech springs with the GV emulators. I have that front end set up (RT linear springs) on my RZ350 but with the knock off Mikes XS emulators. So smooth, planted, and confidence inspiring.

That's great to hear! I looked up the p/ns on RaceTech's website and will be ordering them tonight. I also ordered a Marc Parnes wheel balancer after reading all of the positive reviews.
