    01 rx flywheel stuck

    I have a 2001 seadoo rx it's the regular carb edition and I need to change the bendix and my fly wheel is "STUCK" on the shaft and won't come off it will not budge at all. I have tried to tap it with a hammer on the puller it self and nothing, I have also used a 1/2" impact and still won't budge. I'm starting to run out of ideas.

    Time to get out the torch... If you destroy it with the torch i have a spare, PM me and i will hook ya up. I have a bendix as well, i parted out a couple of these.
    Biggest threat with the torch is loosening/compromising the glue on the magnets in the stator cup.
    I have had to use a torch on several of these, when it starts to get warm turn your impact to it's highest setting on the puller and it will pop right off.

    remove the magneto and thread the screws in a few turns before torching.

    using an impact wrench can cause unwanted problems.

    you can wack the puller pretty good with a 5 pounder.
    Liberal applications of PB, a hair dryer and a long wrench.

    You'll want to wack the puller bolt as you are trying to turn it ( yeah, I clearance if the engine is in the hull.)

    It WILL eventually pop off.

    Wear safety glasses and I expect you are using a factory puller..""universals " aren't quite up to this one.
