Hi Pat--
You don't always need a puller, but your chances of breaking things are greatly reduced if you do have one. If you're going to try to remove that flywheel without a puller, here's what usually gets me good results:
1) Remove cowls and panels as necessary until the flywheel is exposed.
2) Find 2 or 3 wooden stakes that will fit securely beneath the the flywheel. Square pieces about twelve inches long are best.
3) With the wood blocks underneath the flywheel, GENTLY pry up and down between the flywheel and the block evenly all the way around the wheel. You may have to tap the top of the flywheel with a rubber mallet.
Occassionally, some penetrating oil sprayed onto the flywheel's keyway will help make the separation. The real trick to doing this is to pry beneath the flywheel evenly all the way around it. Be patient and take your time. If in doubt, get any gear or wheel puller and, after tightening to GENTLE pressure, give the flywheel a few taps at its center with a rubber mallet. It should pop off.
Hope this helps.

Running rough and backfire

Sounds like a timing problem(flywheel key) sometimes the key will shear part way do to wear, flywheel key is located on crank end under flywheel, disassemble air housing to expose flywheel crank nut unscrew nut (impact) to see key and keyway slot in crank determine that key is not sheard and is in center of crank keyway slot. if sheared you will have to use a puller to remove flywheel from crank. install new key and reinstall flywheel with an impact gun .

Trying to change the points on an old briggs and stratton 8 hp engine

Need to know what model Older engines have points "under" the flywheel. Use a wheel puller to remove after removing the nut in the center of the flywheel. Newer motors have an electronic ignition module. Follow the small wire from the magnetio. If it goes under the flywheel then you have points. If it goes to a small device on side of motor, you have electronic. You can go to and look up your odel number.

No spark on tecumseh 4 hp lawnmower engine


There is a shutdown wire, this wire is grounded somewhere along the route. Look at the coil for this wire; it shorts the coil to ground so no spark can get out to the plug.
Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.

Trouble with flywheel removal.

Yes, it's called a flywheel puller. Assuming it's a Briggs engine, it would be available from any shop that's a Briggs and Stratton dealer. If you want the part #, let me know and I'll get it for you. I'm not in my shop now.

Need to know how to change the points

The engine type is key here. For example if you have a tecumseh engine you will need the instructioins for that and if you have a Kohler engine the instructions will be different.
