    pulling flywheel tip

    tried to pull flywheel but my puller did not have the right metric bolts..auto store didnt have them either...but here is the tip.....the bolts holding the cat converter/d-plate together are the perfect lenghth. use a large washer under each borrowed bolt pull flywheel with steering wheel/ballancer puller , then put bolts back in pipe at converter/d-plate.

    Another side note on GPR cranks. Always use a flat end that swivels on your puller arbor that is bigger than the bolt hole. The "arrow head" type can go into the hole and cause the crank to crack. Same with one that is smaller or the same size as the hole.

    and when you turn it in order for it to pull, don't keep going in with it. Put some heat on it and it will pop off.

    If I get one that is a PITA, I put pressure on it with the puller, then tap on the end of the arbor with a brass hammer and it will pop off.

    flywheel holder

    Not sure if anyone had this problem but when torquing down the flywheel bolt you need a flywheel holder. I have no idea where to get this but i barrowed one from the dealership in town

    Yeah, we talked about that in another thread. You can hold the intermediate shaft via the flat spots with a wrench or cresent. Someone did it by putting some rope in the sparkplug hole to stop the piston.

    I am very lucky to have access to a RAD flywheel tool. (I dont think they are available anymore) It belongs the Fercho. I am afraid he is going to want it back someday.
