    GPR Engine Coupler Removal

    I am tryin for the first time to get the coupler off the crank but I wanted to make sure I got these few things staright first.
    First thing:

    Do I need the coupler removal tool or can I just use something else?

    If so, can someone send me a scale outline of the tool so I can just make one casue I'm to cheap to buy one! lol

    You loosen it clockwise, right?

    If so, what can I use to help loosen it up? Heat?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    Is the motor apart? If the cylinders and head are still on it put a rope inside the rear head making sure the piston is up past the cylinder ports. This will hold the crank in place for you too loosen the coupler. Pretty sure that the coupler is on just like a reg bolt, righty tighty lefty loosen. You can use a torch and heat it up, that will help break it off. Be careful of your crank seals. If the crank is out of the motor just get a nice size vise and clamp it on the rear crank journals. The tool they have for that is nice but does strip out. Just get yourself a nice size pipe that fits inbetween the coupler. Hope this helps for ya.

    Are you sure?! I can't for the life of me get the damn thing off!!! I'm afraid that I'm going to break something. Can anyone else shed some light on it for me?! Any help would be great!
