Default Model 82 Flywheel

Can anyone assist with any tricks to get the flywheel off an 82? I have tried some light smacking and prying, with no luck yet..

Thank you for any help !

Cut two 2x4 pieces about a foot long. Make sure they are equal in length. Remove the flywheel nut and then install on the crank BACKWARDS, so the flat side is FLUSH or slightly above the end of the crank. Stand the boards on end and place the flywheel rim on the standing lengths, on opposite sides. Place a piece of brass or aluminum plate at least 2" square on top of the nut and give a sharp rap with a small steel mallet (3 pounder will work fine). Don't whale on it, just a foot or so of drop should do. Try to hit the brass or aluminum as square as possible. The vibration and engine weight should pop the flywheel loose. This has worked for me on both the 82 and 92 engines.
