Removing Clutch Hub 74 Shovel


New Member
I have completely disassembled my clutch, the only thing left is the clutch hub, bearings and all retaining clips I can find are removed, except maybe the key. I've tried to pull it off using a puller, but I'm bending the clutch hub. It won't come off. I thought this just slipped off. 1974 HD Shovelhead (FXE Superglide).

I have determined that the clutch key is still on the spindle. It seems to be recessed about 3/8 of and inch and I've tried using a pick to loosen it, but to no avail. Any suggestions?

Get a cluth hub puller if you are bending the hub you probably need to replace it also.
