    Methods for removing the coupler from engine to split cases

    What are some of the methods being used to remove the coupler from the motor without the special tool, that needs to come off so I can remove a cover to be able to split the cases. Any info would be helpful for my guy helping me out.

    With the tool most of the time it's a job and a half, I can not imagine without it. Pull the engine, talk to your local dealer and pay them a few dollars to get the coupler off. Easiest way to get it done.

    Gave up after using a blow torch and two of us and a 6ft bar. Cut it off with the grinder and purchased a billet coupling.
