use a vice or large pair of vice grips to hold flywheel, put a wrench on the large nut on the crank and turn

BTW you will need to gently knock the flywheel from the back to get it of the collet

Or you can use a flywheel puller instead of "knocking it off." Much easier and less chance of damaging things.

Would anyone mind posting pics or a video of how to get the flywheel off? Or know of a link that could help?

Thanks for the advice guys.

Open back of engine and use this: tool This will lock the crank. Now u should be able to get the nut off. Then get either a battery terminal puller or this tool to pull off flywheel.

looks like the stem with the handle on it pushes against the crank while the hooks pull on the flywheel. No thanks.

I like to use chanel lock pliers with rubber hose not to mar flywheel and a deep socket to loosen nut so you dont damage clutch pins if you pop nut loose and bind wrench on the pin it can damage your pin or flywheel then take the plastic handle and give a good tap on the back of the flywheel to pop it off the collet this works without special tools though if you got the cash it seems alot easier with them gismos show above

I've used mine countless times, and it never once marred or damaged anything on my engines, plus it makes even stubborn flywheels as easy to remove as pie.

with a puller applying even pressure it wouldnt take much to pop it off and most flywheels are aluminum and a crank is steel some hardened so no worry there and a guy could put a piece of nylon to protect the crank if worreid
