    is there an easy way to remove my flange coupling from the motor side of my 1300R?

    help...how do I remove the flange coupling from my jetski? My flange coupling got a little warped because I'm a lazy moron who didnt have an impact wrench and I used the teeth on the coupling to help hold the crank while I torqued down the front bolt. I did assemble it with anti-seize and it hasnt had to turn the impeller yet...

    any suggestions would be great.

    thanks,

    Mike

    I'd be tempted to cut if off

    great you have good access

    I think there are special tools that hold the flywheel so you could take the coupler off normally - but it is probably easier to remove motor from hull and cut the coupler off than try to find the proper tool

    electric hand grinder with a cutting wheel, just be real careful not to get the crank threads

    I'd do 2 cuts, one on each side - not quite right through - then get a crowbar and pry into the cracks to break the coupler apart

    If you have not ran the engine since putting it on with antiseize, then a good rap with a ball pein hammer or deadblow outta do it. Just be sure and rap it the right direction.

    are you talking about the rear drive coupler ???

    Just put a rope or something in the sparkplug hole and that will stop the engine from turning

    Rich, that thought occurred to me however I wasn't sure if that would cause a problem with the crank or rod that I block...I'm going to give it a few knocks with a hammer...it is anti-seized up and its never been run since I put it back on...

    Rich I got your kits today...installed one so far...have a question i'll pm you about.

    update...only had to put plugs in and I knocked it with a pry bar on the teeth with a 2 pound hammer on the other end...came right off without anything crazy needing to be done.

    thanks for the help

    Mike
