Rebuilding my 350Qs in my 1983 Catalina 350. Have engines out and beginning disassembly. Having no luck in removing the Damper Drive Hub on the engines. Have tried the standard pulley puller, but no luck. Thinking of some heat, but before I try a torch to heat up and expand damper I thought I would seek some other answers.
Thanks for reading and any suggestions/help would be appreciated.
I've been lucky in the past on stubborn taper flywheels with Powermix 3100

A mixture of propane and buthane available in canister.
It has a special nozzle that allows you to add air thus oxygen to the mixture and this in turn makes the flame burn at a higher temp.
It makes steel glow red without the need of oxy-acetilene.
Don't now if it's available in the US though...
Have a nice day,
