I have always used a good piece of hardwood about the length of a hammer handle and a BIG hammer to drive the hardwood when it is placed against the bottom of the sleeve. A couple of good strokes and out they come. I have never used my sleeve puller on a wet sleeve.

At about fifty years old you could have a bad O ring on a sleeve or even a sleeve could be corroded through.

I'm not sure whether the WD engine is similar inside as a B engine, but I used a regular sleeve puller to change the sleeves in my engine. 20 minutes and I had all 4 sleeves out. You could probably rent one from a tool rental store for about $10-$20 bucks. Saves a lot of time and aggrivation.... Steve/Custom Circuits

Heat up the sleeves with a torch, and when they shrink crush them with a screwdriver and pull them out. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO SCRATCH THE BLOCK

Just my $.02 Your milage may vary.

Don't know about a wd45, but that is the easiest way I know. It works REAL GOOD on fords and Massey Fergusons. It was just a thought.

When I did my WD45 I used a long bolt, a old clutch disk and a piece of channel steel,, I took the channel steel and cut it so it would just sit on the webbing, then drilled a hole dead center of it, then I got me a long bolt, threded rod would work, make sure it is a pretty good diameter..then I took a old clutch disk and cut it off with a grinder so all I had was the center circle with the springs, knocked the springs out ,,, I put the disk at the bottom of the sleeve, ran the blot up through it to the top, put the channel on over the sleeve and then put on the nut,, pulled her up tight and crawled under the engine, then I took two hammers, one I put the handle end against the disk and hit it on the head with the other one,,sleeves popped right out with out any damage,, the pressure from the puller combined with the taps on the bottom worked great,,,,Jim

It may be the "O-rings, on the sleeves, but more than an even chance it is a crack in the web, between #1&2, or #3&4...don't worry too much about it......if it runs well, and you don't want to tear it all apart- you can clean the water jacket, dry it out, and pour (carefully) in a pint of Aviation gasket sealer-like "Permatex"...let it spread all around the lower water jacket, and it will be fine... If you have to pull the sleeves, you can use a long bolt, thru a hard 2x4, shimmed up, from the head surface.....the other end thru a short Hard 2x4, cut to fit under the sleeve....it should not take very much pressure to pull them. Re-installing, I would still use the pint of sealer, before I bolted on the head....

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
