How to Remove Crank
Can someone explain how to do this? I have the top of the casing off. Fly wheel is still on. Crank won't come out. It spins and works fine since I got the metel from the bearings and rod out of the bottom.
After this post is done lets move it to the "How to" section

You should be able to pop it right out. The seals are more than likely holding it in. use a piece of wood as a lever and try gently prying between the case half and the crank end.

yup, the seals are holding it in. rubber mallet the end of it up. tap on the flywheel or coupler. it'll come up.

Are you reusing the crank or having it sent in for bearing checks/indexing/TW? You should have took the flywheel off before you did anything,while it was still in the cases.You can use i vise to hold the crank,wrapped in towels,but i dont like that idea.You need to remove that front crank seal,that means removing the flywheel.Just a thought bro.

Thanks guys! I was able to get it out just like that! Seemed like it was bolted in some how lol!
Crank is a-ok though

Oh shit, I forgot about that. I will put it back in the casing tomorrow and remove that fly wheel I guess.
I plan to send it to crankworks to be checked out, bearins replace, ect... then welded and trued. Any other ideas for the crank? I am using it for the 1390 setup and want it to be bullet proof.

And as osidebill sed, use wood to pry it out as you don't anything like to metal to mar/scar/damage the surface of the case mating surfaces.
