    Smile Pro 785 flywheel pull-

    Finally after 6 days of wrangling, busted knuckles, broken harmonic balance pullers, broken bolts, bent bolts,
    lost bolts, bolts broken off flush with the face of the flywheel, drilling out broken bolt, tapping bigger hole to take new 8mm bolt to make it all work and finally woo woo it is off,
    I had to sit down and have a adult frosty beverage,
    next step is to get the 2 phillips head screws that hold the wire down by the starter, I was able to get one out, but the other one behind the starter bendix is hard to see, any suggestions?????
    Do I have to remove the starter???
    I hope I never have to do a flywheel again,
    Thanks for everyones help,

    The starter can stay put. its not in the way. Thats a great Idea to drill the holes out bigger to 8mm instead. makes it lighter too! take the bendix out.

    I didn't want to drill it bigger, but when the second bolt broke off in the 6mm hole got stuck, I tried drilling a small hole down the middle,of the broken bolt, then use a left hand easy out, but it didn't work, so I tried a 1/4" x 20 thread tap but it was too wobbly, so I used a 8mm tap, it took a while, but finally it worked, then the 8mm bolt was so much bigger than the 6mm ones but it worked,
    I am going on with a new flywheel anyway, I just hope this stator works,
    how do I get the bendix out??

    Remove the inner stator cover and pull it out.
