Hi all

This is my first post.

I'm currently putting a 2009-2010 Fastcut 32 back together, its a 15.5/32. I bought it pretty cheaply, but have had to buy a whole host of bits for it to make it right. I have to go into it:

New rear axle and bearings.
New clutch shaft, bearings and shims. Will put new cork faces on it too and new springs.
New seat.
New battery.
New tie rods.
New chain.
New oil filter, air filter.

Prior owner had butchered it a bit, removed the chain tensioner and bodgied that up hence the worn out axle sprocket and chain, plus damaged the clutch shaft. He also removed the notch bar spring and buggered it all up too.

I was given an Evolution III machine for spare parts and it has donated a few bits like steering wheel, notch bar and pulley arrangement and a couple of other bits and pieces. The chassis is really rusty so not salvageable.

The two problems I'm having are:

1. Finding a chain tensioner. I have new bearings for it. Luckily I have found a guy that has the remains of one that he is going to sell to me, and I'll restore it or remake a new one using it as a template. If there is a market for these I'll draw it up on CAD and maybe get a few cut out by water cutting, and make a few up to sell. They are NLA from Cox.

2. Removing the rear wheels. Already wrecked a rear wheel trying to use a harmonic balancer puller. Luckily the EIII has two I can use if I can get those off too! So the question is, does anyone have a picture of the original Greenfield wheel puller and a GT number for it? Is it GT02199? I tried WD40 for days, heat etc. I'd like to buy one but cannot find one. WOuld also pay to borrow one if someone has one. When the wheels go back on the new shaft I'll be using never seize or copperkote.

Hello HK1837

A warm welcome to these forums.

I can't say I'm familiar with a Fastcut 32.
Some images might help prod members.

Please keep us informed.

Cant help with the tensioner, i would have one on my 24/34 fastcut if you need pics or anything though.

As far as removing wheels go, I am not aware greenfield had a specific tool, never seen one anyway. The main part of removing them is a shock. i have got them off by just loosening the nut, everything just on the ground tyre inflated and hitting the axle with a hammer through a block of wood.

But when i have to remove a really stubborn one, I remove the tyre, then throw a big 3 leg gear puller on the rim, leaving the axle nut on but loose so as not to damage the shaft, then tighten the puller up. once there is weight on it, strike the puller bolt and it should come off. if not, I heat the wheel hub from the back if possible, hard to do on the sprocket side, then tighten and hit again. the key is the the strike to break the taper lock.

Hi HK ,Jack and nath

I've heard a pneumatic hammer that hits the centre of the axle works really well ,I guess 3000 blows per minute
works a lot better better than a standard hammer.

Thanks guys.

I picked up a semi-complete tensioner. It has had the all-thread cut off. Nath, are you able to measure the total length of the threaded rod? Once I get that length I can grind off the remains of the old one and weld on a new bit. Also if you are able to do it (might need to be a contortionist!), can you measure the length and width of the plate at the rear that the bolts are welded to that come through the slot in the frame and then through the tensioner? Once I have that measurement I'll make one of those up too.

I'll have another go at this wheel using heat and a hammer. There was a specific puller for it, it is just NLA now.
