You must have a 6 - 8 inch three jaw flywheel puller it is fairly difficult to do so have some patience after removing the center nut you must adjust the center shaft on puller to the corect distance on the shaft the nut just came off while positioning the three hooks around the outer ring of the flywheel, they must contact the bottom lip of the flywheel at the same time the center thresded shaft is turned in so you can turn the center shaft nut and provide positive pulling force on the flywheel after you have attained the set up of the puller by hand tighten the center puller threaded shaft to the point where it starts to be hard to turn then while holdind the flywheel by wedging a large screwdriver into the outer ring gear teeth of flywheel turn fly wheel puller center shaft with the appropriate size wrench a half turn the hit the shaft with a hammer twice turn the shaft a 1/4 turn then hit agian etc. until the flywheel pops up and pull off.

if the piston rings have snapped. as they can do. it can lock the piston in place. and you will need to bore out a piston bore and put in a sleeve and new piston. worst possible thing is the crank has snapped. other possible is the generator motor has seized up making it so the engine will not move.
