Remove the pull chord assembly, under is the flywheel....remove the 3/4" nut...spray the shaft with WD-40...tap the flywheel gently while lifting the flywheel upwards it should "po" suddenly if its frozen(rusted) onto the shaft get a puller simple to R&R.
Check the "keyway" for wear ..if worn causes the engine to pull your arm out of socket and backfire etc.
Replace the "Key" with a 50 cent part from local hardware store bring in the old one to match up.

You need a flywheel puller tool. You can rent them at most auto parts stores for a few dollars a day. Be advised that flywheels can be very hard to remove, and can come off suddenly and violently when using a puller, keep your face away.

Do you mean flywheel removal? A flex plate is the toothed gear that bolts up to a torque converter on a vehicle with an automatic trans. If you mean a flywheel, which is what a clutch bolts up to, then yes it is highly recommended to remove it and have it surfaced when doing a clutch job. And since you are there anyway I would also suggest replacing the rear main seal

My Jeep cherokee not starting after removal of flywheel. Is there a specific way to install the flywheel?


The teeth on the flywheel need to be close enough for the starter motor to catch them when it engages. If you removed it and now the starter just free-spins when starting then you may have installed the flywheel backwards and the starter motor cannot reach the teeth on the flywheel. If its making a loud grinding or pinging sound you may need to manually turn the engine a bit to align the flywheel.

Mower will not shut off when disengaged \r\nwhen starting the mower the pull chord is very hard to pull and i usually have to take off the mechanism and readjust it


REPAIR OF THIS SORT USUALLY REQUIRES REMOVAL OF THE FLYWHEEL AND WITHOUT THE PROPER TOOLS AND KNOWLEDGE YOU MAY DAMAGE IT PERMANTLY, IF YOU CAN HANDLE THE FLYWHEEL REMOVAL YOU PROBABLY WILL BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT THE REST BUT BE MINDFULL THAT THE CABLE FOR THIS IS USUALY ABOUT $60.00

How do i remove the flywheel on a huqvarna 272


The fyywheel is on a taper, so there is a service tool to remove it, the early 372XP has a 14mm flywheel securing nut, this flywheel requires service tool 502514902, the crank has a normal wood ruff key, the later 372XP has a 13mm flywheel securing nut, this flywheel has an integral alloy key within the flywheel its self, there is a much simpler knock off service tool for removal 502519401.
Hope this answers your question.

1987 kdx fly wheel


The 125 uses an internal flywheel, if the flywheel you are asking about looks the same, meaning the magnets will be in the same location when you look at the timing marks on the flywheel. The woodruff key is used to make sure you put the flywheel on in the same place after removal. The 1/2 degree difference in the shaft tapers, (7degrees on crankshaft, 6.5 degrees on the flywheel), is what holds the flywheel in place.
