LOL , I have been trying to get the flywheel off a Continental 3HP now for a long time no luck . But on other engines they will pop on and off with ease .
good luck on your quest .

Hi Bob ,
I was finally successful in removing the flywheel from my engine.
If you go to SMALL AIR COOLED GASOLINE ENGINES forum and look at removing flywheel on small eng. date 2-9-09 you will see the advice that I recived , But I think heat did the job for me.
Hope this helps.
Jim

Be careful with the heat, don't set it on fire and have extinguisher handy just in case.

Watch those bolts so that you don't go in too far with them and drive one right into the magneto coil. Been there - Done that.....

The flywheel puller is built in on that engine.Just back the nut out against the starter plate and keep turning.It will pop the flywheel off.Wish everyone made em like that.
