    If your in Tampa, get with Jims 1300, he should be able to help ya. I think he aint' far. Several Florida guys on the forum here

    Exhaust pipe has to come out
    Stator cover has to be removed
    Flywheel puller

    there is a thread on how the woodruff key is to be installed.

    also contact WFO. He has done lots of them on the EFI 1300's

    If you decide to do it yourself use the link below... the pictures helped me a lot! Its easier than I thought but the flywheel poping off will almost give you a heartattack

    I did mine in the boat as well with a harmonic balancer puller.

    I know your going to premix so this doesnt apply to you, but in case someone pulls this up for reference down the road. REMOVE YOUR OIL PUMP BEFORE YOU REINSTALL THE COVER. The oil pump shaft has to line up in the slot and it will break the pump if its not. After the cover is on, then you can line up the slot and install the oil pump. No need to ask how I found this out.

    You can get a harmo puller at advanced auto (a kit) that will even have the right bolts in it. It is under their loan a tool program. I did mine in the boat with a mirror. no big deal.

    The tool progarm is cool. just take a CC and they charge you, but you return it and they even return you tax. TOOOO COOL

    Here is a tip I saw in a Waterwoody post.

    I used a holesaw to open up the hole in the stator cover for a socket to fit. This allows acess to retorque the flywheel bolt.

    I had CrankWorks radius the stock flywheel to help prevent snout failure.

    Put a little pressure on the flywheel with the puller, and lightly tap it with a ball peen hammer. Increase pressure slowly as needed.

    If you do this in the ski, place padding in the bottom of the ski to catch the flyweel when it POPS off.
