65 hp evinrude removal of flywheel


Remove the Flywheel nut, Get a steering wheel puller or a harmonic balancer puller that has a pin in the bottom. ( I have both and the official OMC one the OMC is the best) . Get the proper length bolts and make sure they go far enough into the flywheel to engage all the threads but not too far as to damage the coils. Make sure they are screwed in evenly. Then tighten the puller while holding the flywheel ( you can use a screwdriver by the starter or a flywheel holder)and when it feels tight hit the top of the tightening bolt (This is the one in the center of the puller with a hammer. that will "pop" the flywheel. if it doesn't come tighten more and hit it again. The shock of the hammer will pop it off. If you don't shock it, it may not pop off the taper.

Here is a picture of the OMC puller and a Steering wheel puller the OMC is the black one.

Here is the proper bolt. Official OMC tool bolt

Notice the thread length is limited as this is a shoulder bolt made especially for pulling OMC flywheels. That prevents them from screwing in too far and helps keep them even.

Flywheel removing


the simplest way to remove a flywheel is to use an impact gun. To re-tension the flywheel place a gear box bolt in a hole and use a large flat bladed screw driver in the teeth and under the bolt against the turn of the bolt. Some flywheels seem stuck on as they are positioned on a dowel so a hit on the front side will jar them loose.

How can I remove a leaf caught in the fan/cabin ventilation system in the dashboard?


the best way is to lower the blower motor and remove, the motor is under the dash on the pass/side theres three bolts that hold it in, remove the connection then the screw bolts and down it goes, it no hard to do it will take you maybe 1/2 hour, there may be a cover covering the motor also just remove that also if theres one. hope this helps.heres a picture of it i pointed out the three screw locations and just pull rubber hose off.2b96847.jpg

Casablanca stealth fan light scrapes against blade surround


There are two probable causes. One, the light housing has been pushed/bent up into the rotating assembly, which is possible if the fan were ever removed from the ceiling and sat on the glass.

If it has never been removed however, the most likely cause is that the Allen Set screw on the flywheel has loosened allowing the flywheel to slip down the motor shaft. It's a purely mechanical problem and if memory serves, to get to the flywheel, you remove the light pan and it's right there. Find the set screw, loosen it enough so that the flywheel is easy to move up and down and raise it up a bit and then cinch it down tight. It's a fairly common problem and for the life of me I cannot understand why Casablanca would not use loctite on that set screw. I mean you pay $500+ for a fan, it should outlast you, right?

How do you change the fan belt on a john deere mower? The model is X740.


You must remove drive shaft,once that is done you can remove bolts holding pulley on the flywheel and then slide belt around fan.The pulley will become two halves once you remove bolts securing it to flywheel,When putting back together you must rotate flywheel to help alignment of belt in v-groove.

I have removed the pressure plate and clutch disc. how do i remove the flex plate to get to the flex plate bolts. 2007 dodge ram 3500 6 speed manual transmission


theres an access cover under the turbo on the front of the bellhousing (2 10mm bolts) that you have to remove to access the bolts that hold the flywheel to the flexplate. kinda like removing the bolts to a torque converter. flywheel is real hevy though, watch your fingers
