New to forum... Need your suggestions
Hi, I am new to the forum. I have been reading for sometime your posts and getting a lot of valuable information, so thank you for that. I finally decided to become a member so here I am.
I currently own two XL 700 that I have had since they came out. Finally one of them the motors failed on me. I have order a replacement motor for it and I am in the process of swapping them out. However, I am having a bit of trouble trying to remove the coupling flange; the one on the back of the motor.
Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to remove it? I noticed that the service manual shows on some models that they might come with a 3/8th space for a breaker bar but I don't see that on this one. I imagine that it is threaded but it is left turn or right turn?
Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks in advance.

welcome to the forum,
I have no experiance on that model,, Typically the manual should show what special tools are needed and the procedure to accomplish the task....
Give it some time someone should post in that has had hands on with it.

Thanks for your post. The manual explains to use a chain wrench to remove the PTO coupler, but I am not sure exactly how I am suppose to stop the crankshaft from spinning. Not that it really matters, since the core is being turned in but I don't want to cause any more damage. The motor has been taken apart. I don't know if I should wedge something in crankshaft to keep it from spinning.

Alright guys so I was able to take it off. As it turns out the motor turns clockwise, so I just figured that to tighten would be counter clockwise so it does have reversed threading. Right turns loosens the PTO coupler. Figured I would post for anyone else who might need this information.
