    The $75 price tag for the puller kinda has me in shock. I'm probably gonna run the whole trannie over to the BMW (Ironhorse in Tucson) and have them pull the output flange. Or I'll fabricate something. One of the articles I read gives dimensions for cutting the flange plate and there is an Industrial Metal Supply shop here in town that could cut the plate out.

    Same with the holder. I can cut steel and have a mig and a drill press.

    It's all a little hard to picture until I can get into the trans, I'll read & study as I go along. I do have a Haynes and a BMW factory service manual as well.

    Something to do on the kitchen table this winter, I think.

    Do check out the thread about building one's own tools. There are several home made versions of this tool.

    One nice feature of the Cycle Works tool is that the holder and the puller are the same tool. The large center plug comes out for holding the flange while the nut is removed and the center plug is replaced with the forcing screw to pull the flange. (hope this helps you see how it works)
