    The Tusk crankcase splitter / separator is an indispensable tool if you are performing a bottom-end engine rebuild. It makes the process of splitting a case a breeze and will work like a charm for most 2-stroke and 4-stroke vertically split crankcases – especially since the tool's adjustable arms allow it to function properly on many different types of bolt patterns. The splitter also makes disassembling the crankcase simple by allowing you to safely push the crank assembly right out of the case halves. It used to be that splitting the case was only possible with expensive tools. The Tusk crankcase splitter / separator has changed everything with a quality, affordable case-splitting tool.
  • The Tusk crankcase splitter is a must for disassembling vertically split 2- and 4-stroke crankcases.
  • It makes crankcase disassembly easy by safely pushing the crank assembly out of the case halves.
  • Adjustable arms permit it to be used on a variety of bolt patterns.
  • Both 8mm and 6mm mounting bolts are included.

Poor quality
The weld on one of the arms broke the first time I attempted to use the tool. I had dismissed the other bad reviews as inexperienced mechanics, but I have 45 years of experience. Also, the pusher bolt is flat, as opposed to having a point, which tends to make it want to "walk" on the shaft instead of staying centered. Poor design.

Good Poduct
Good product design, just a little weak on the welds. Easy to use and quickly splits cases. Broke two welds the first time I used it on the botton section. Re-welded all welds and no more problems.

Another well made tool, instructions are fairly basic to follow. I also use a Map gas torch to ease the operation.

Anyone try this and the installer on 1970s era Huskys?

Tusk Crank Puller/Installer Tool
BEST ANSWER: Hey John. I have not worked on those engines in particular but I have used these tools on many others. Before I had the splitter tool it was necessary to make a custom pulling plate for each different set of engine cases because the tapped holes for the pull rods are often not 180 degrees across from each other and the push pin must be straight on to the end of the crankshaft. Using this tool it is easy to centre the pin and then move the slotted arms to line up with two or three tapped holes in the engine case. Remember to make the puller level with the cases so that you pull evenly an the anchor rods. The crank puller/installer is easy to use. It slips over the end of the crankshaft and the threaded/tapped end is used to draw the crank toward the case. Hope this helps, Jay.
Will this splitter work on a kx250 98 model??

Will this work on multiple machines?
Matthew D on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but depending on the engine design you may have to fabricate an adapter plate.I have used mine on two very different engines with no problems at all.

BEST ANSWER: I could not tell you for sure. The trick to pulling the crank case is to pull it apart evenly and equally. Not knowing the width I'm just not sure. These tools will do many different crankcase. Sorry I could not help on that one. Best advise would be to call the cat dealer, or measure the distance between the bolts send them to me and I can measure the three spreader legs to see if this will work. It needs to have three points to pull equal.
