    Have you tried a flywheel puller? Heat helps, but be careful not to heat too much and damage crank seals...

    I know the Fuji engine (blue) flywheels are on TIGHT! I've pulled a few and they took work. I use a "loaner" balancer puller kit... similar to this one at Harbor Freight:
    http://www.harborfreight.com/46-piec...set-37824.html

    I use lots of PBblaster and a little heat on the flywheel around the crank. Then use a big breaker bar on the puller bolt... cranking it way past comfortable into the "this is gonna break" territory. I also wrap on the flywheel pretty good with a hard rubber mallet while it's under pressure. Then it finally pops and scares the crap out of me. First time it popped off and fell to the ground and onto my foot. I've since learned to be ready for it. haha.

    Good luck!

    Yeah, if you have never pulled one your going to be surprised, even if you have you'll be surprised, sounds like a 22LR going off in your garage. I know people think Im crazy but I used a long snout bar-b-q lighter to heat around the crank snout while I had pressure on the flywheel, it heated up the loctite but wasnt to hot to hurt the stator,although u have to hold it for several min at a time. Your going to have to crank in to the epic porportions to get it off, I thought for sure I was going to break the puller when I took mine off.

    Use the harbor freight puller. A little heat on the crank snout and good torque on the puller and it will come off. As long as you are in there, replace the front crank seal. Its in the flywheel cover and only takes a few more bolts to get it off and change it. You will have to re seal the housing to the front of the motor then.

    In Fuji world you have to split the cases. Domestics have the front seal in the flywheel housing.
