Put the crank in a vise, protect it with wood blocks. Heat the coupler and turn it counter clockwise. If you don't have the special tool, you can use a crow bar leveraged across but be prepared to leave some marks.
Special tool with a 1/2" breaker bar makes it better.

Awe thats cool! Never seen that. I broke one of my couplers last year trying to get it off with a big axle handle. That one looks like a sho/fx motor so maby look up the coupler from a gpr and see if its the same part number as a sho or fz. And do you know of a place that makes things like that from a cad drawing? That would be nice to have to make some leak test plates.

I used a pipe wrench with a piece of pipe for leverage on the small part. Normal threads.

I picked up a chain wrench from harbor frieght for 6 bucks. Worked great! Seen it on SBT site.

i clamp in a vise and put a pipe wrench on front side so it doesnt hurt anything and turn counter clockwise. comes right off. no need for heat
