remove the clutchbell then remove the clutch shoe. you will able to see the big nut in the center. Use adjustable lock plier or monkey plier to hold the flywheel tightly then turn the nut. After the nut is out, use a big allen key to softly hit the flywheel with oppesite way on the flywheel so that it will out evenly..Hope you understand what I said

Or put an old bolt (don't use the one you plan to put back in) in the end of the crank. But honestly, I've never damaged one with this tool.

Beating on the flywheel (with the crank held against a solid surface) DOES work... but you take more chance of damaging the crank that way than with a puller! AND you take more chance of damaging the flywheel... pins hit the surface and get jammed through the flywheel...

Use the puller. It is easier, faster, and less chance of damage.

cannon plug pliers are great. i get them from a local aircraft tool supply.
these are also nice for building shocks.
