Default where the #$*&%# are you mister puller?

Man I'm having one heck of a time trying to find a M90 pulley puller around in my neck of the woods. I tried Autozone, Advanced Auto, and Murrays. These are the big three by me. I may have to try to rent one online. Most of the people I talked to didn't even know it existed! Anyone in the Cleveland Ohio area, or more specifically in Lake county who rented one? Has any of you rented one online?

You won't find one locally unless another member, or member of CGP lives in your area. These are made by Pulley Boys in Seattle, WA, and re-sold or rented by other online distributors like the Grandprixstore, zzp, etc.

Or you can do what I did, and make your own

Kevo, put your location in your sig. It would help in this situation. There may be a member nearby that has a puller.

Or you can do what I did, and make your own
If you had access to a machine shop, those would be fairly easy to make. Just think of the profit you could make if you made a bunch for rentals and/or selling. Price it a little lower that the major "competition." Bam! You could make a killing. The Alpine site boasts over 12k hits since February of this year. If even a tenth of those hits were sales, that would make you one rich dude if you even had a portion of those sales and/or rentals.

Disclaimer: Don't know if it'* patented and if you could make a variation so as to not infringe on the patent if it does exist.

It'* patented and owned by one of our vendor/members. I made mine, as he didn't make one for the 92/93 size.

Does this vendor sell cheaper than the others? Alpine Echo sells one for $82, and ZZP rents them for $29 plus $100 deposit, and others sell one for $125.
