    Flywheel removal

    Have a 1996 hurricane. To pull apart the crankcase do i need to remove the flywheel housing? If so how do you get the flywheel of if you don't have the special tool to do it? will it come of with the rope in the cylinder trick? anyone. thanx a bunch.

    Welcome to Green Hulk.
    Yes,the timing/stator cover is bolted to both halves of the crankcase and needs to be removed .
    The fly wheel nut shouldn't be that tight,about 50lb/ft.Find a way to hold the crankshaft still or use an Impact gun.
    You will need a good flywheel puller/harmonic balancer puller to remove it.When installing the 3 bolts for the puller,do not install them too far(Polaris says 3/8 inch) you could damage the electrical stator located directly under the flywheel. Many chain type auto parts stores rent tools such as this puller.

    Yes, use the rope in the PTO cylinderto lock the crank up. And do like Casey says.

    For the flywheel, shouldn't the rope go into the MAG cylinder, which is the cylinder closest to the flywheel?

    Yes correct on the mag cyl .I dont' like the rope system anyway
    Best way to hold crank is to put the 3 bolts in the flywheel and put a bar/combination spanner, between 2 bolts to stop it rotating Then undo the crank nut .Can hold it to do it up too .No stress on crank at all

    Cheers

    A good puller is best.

    Usa a good puller and an air impact gun. Rope scares me, as it puts a lot of stress on the crankshaft & piston.

    Thanks for looking,

    Any chance you'll rent your puller to me? I need to replace a bendix on a 2001 Virage TXi.

    Autozone has a harmonic balancer puller kit #27019 that has all the accessories for $15. If you bring it back it is considered a rental.

    I am removing a flywheel for the first time. Is the threads normal or reverse? I am going to use an impact wrench on it and I don't want to damage anything if it is reverse threads.
