Removing the rubber handle

Recommended Posts

The Tool Crib

During the restoration of my last two tractors I had to remove the rubber handle on the top of my  implement lift arm.

 I have found an easy way to do this. Maybe some of you have done this but the best way to remove it is to put it in a boiling pot of water. Now you have to run this past the wife first but cleanup is easy!

No problem, buy a used pot from the thrift store and do the job while she is at the hair dresser!         :hide:

I used to bake the brass cylinder liner for my RC model boats in the oven when I was prepping my race engines.  My wife frowned upon that for some reason.  Was easier to do when she was not in the house...….

I always tell her stuff like that is for fixing the snowblower. Her alternative is to go buy herself a shovel so believe me, there's no complaints

I have my own crock pot and acetylene torch for things like this.

You should have seen the big steamer box I put on the range, across the aisle, and on the island so I could bend some wood. Nobody home that day.

Much easier way....save the marriage too:  Find a open end wrench (approx 1")  that just slips over the round steel bar (tube).

Hold that onto the round bar right against the edge of the rubber grip.  Then hammer the opposite side of the open end wrench, driving the rubber grip right off of the steel tube.  It'll come right off...no damage.  I've done this 50 + times...  Happy horses...happy wifey.
