Rebuilding 68 E type 4.2l engine and managed to get the crank damper off with a pulle r. But struggling to remove the split cone . Tried sharp rap as Jag manual suggests without luck. Looked up earlier forum suggestions such as to pry from back of cone; no success and afraid of damage of using more force. Can’t get pulled behind it as one person suggested. Have used lots of penetrating oil before these tries.
Does anyone else have a tried and true method?
