Hi

now got a big problem. Made up a simple tool to get the nut of the flywheel, all worked fine and off it came. I could now see that the threads on the flywheel shaft, which the puller screws onto didn’t look good. So I screwed the puller on to the end and started tightening the nut that should break the flywheel seal. No luck, I can get quite tight but when I tighten further it starts to slacken and is obviously pulling the puller of the thread. I’ve tried tapping it with a hammer but the flywheel is stuck fast.

i really need some help/advice, what else can I do. I’m not bothered about preserving the flywheel as I am going to replace it with an electronic system which comes with its own flywheel. 

Does anyone know a possible solution?

I told you the fun might continue! If you put 'flywheel removal' into the search formula Stoo and Mick have been suggesting recently you will find plenty of info. Try not to damage the flywheel, though. Someone will be glad of it.

Maybe put loctite thread lock on flywheel thread, screw on puller and leave to dry. Then do the pulling and hopefully it will come off. Getting the puller tool off the thread should be possible after its removed with heat and brute force.
