Try to remember this rule of thumb; because the last time i had to remove a flywheel it worked for me; Left=loosen(counterclockwise) right=tighten(clockwise). Also just a small hint if u have trouble getting it off any normal way; use whats called a battery terminal remover which u can get from any auto parts store. U just slap it on there, tighten it down, and voila, u should be good to go. Hope this helps ya out.

Grip the flywheel with channell lock pliers,w/soft jaw[tape/rag]
Don't Crush it.
Don't try to lock the piston.
Righty-tighty Lefty-loosey
A helper to Hold the Engine is good if you
have to Smack it from the back.
Batt Term' puller is a Great Idea!
Never any good on 1/1 Batt's anyway.
