When I first discovered that I'd
ordered the wrong flywheel puller I had a brief fantasy of
fabricating one of my own to get the job done.
I never could figure out a decent direction to go in and decided to
give up on it for a while and just mow with the semi un-balanced blade.
Well some guy with an interesting blog named Ed had a bit more gumption
than I did and almost made his own
diy flywheel puller tool pictured here.
He reports the wood
breaking before the flywheel came free, which is a bummer. The way he
finally solved the problem was to take it to a local shop where they
used the crude but effective hammer and screwdriver approach to pop it
I'm starting to wonder if
anybody out there uses these flywheel puller tools for the basic small
to medium lawn mower engine?
