    The shop manual was real helpful. It just states "remove it"

    +1 on the heat.Take some towels and shove'em down the cylinders.I used a breaker bar and a rubber mallet with a ratchet strap holding the case down on a table.Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the tips. I was second guessing myself on how much pressure I'm putting on the coupling. My flywheel lock tool bent so I'm going to make something tomorrow more heavy duty. I'll throw the heat on her and hopefully she'll let go. Thanks again for the tips!

    In the picture your cylinders are already removed. You will need to block the crank from spinning when you turn the coupler. Do not wedge or block the crank at the bottom of the crank case. You could crack the case. Try to block the crank at the top of the case where it's thickest at the top where the cylinder bolts up.
