My flywheel threads are junk so I can't get the rotor removal tool threaded on to remove the flywheel the proper way. The flywheel is junk so ruining it isn't a problem. I was going to try a 3 arm puller, but I'm not sure the arms have enough to grab onto and hold. Anybody have other ideas?

The 3 arm puller wont work...

If you have a welder, throw a few tac welds on the tool and fly wheel :busted:

Drill and tap two or three holes in the flywheel and use a bolt grip puller like you would use on a steering wheel or a harmonic balancer???

I got a 4" puller today. I put it on, heated the flywheel a bit, got a hammer and tapped and tightened, tapped and tightened, etc, etc. Came off without a pop or much resistance. Didn't have to hit it very hard at all. Just firm taps. Thanks for all of the replies.

Now I need to get out all of the copper and plastic bits out of the bottom of the crankcase. How dangerous is it to have a few of those bits in there?
