Default Removing crankshaft?

I pulled apart my RS12 and I cannot get the cranksaft out. How do I got about doing this? Everything else came apart fine.

Sometimes I have to tap on the shaft with the handle of a screwdriver to slide the crank out of the bearing.

That worked great. I didn't know if there was a pin or channel/groove I was missing. Thanks again.

Lucky you. I went to remove the crankshaft on my RS12 at the beginning of lastyear. Tapping didnt work.

Took 90psi on a pneumatic press to remove it.

I thought you have to heat it up on the stove a little, if the shaft refuse to come out. Of course the cub. must be remove before this process. Some engine is installed with a rubber seal on the front bearings, so be careful.
Forcing it out may damage the shaft & bearings...
