    Find some good rope.......put it in the cylinder from the spark plug hole, rotate engine slowly so that piston is pushing rope into the head. That will lock the engine from rotating......then you can get a wrench or whatever on the coupler.

    Sometimes they come off REALLY hard, and sometimes easily.


    EDIT: Nevermind........jumped through your post too fast.

    Your crank will need to be pressed apart. Send it someone for crank work!

    Like Redline said, you'll have to bring to a shop to replace the rod.

    I have done it myself before, but you need access to a full machine shop to press it apart then realign it. After doing it once, I don't think I would attempt it again. Realigning it was a real pain in the a$$.

    That would be Midwest Crankshaft I believe. Can't remember his name, but we did alot of buisness with him when i was at the dealership. He was fairly quick on turn around and not priced too bad.

    And of course their is the usual site favorites here.
