on the fly wheel. the bolt holes on one side will show where the fly wheel washers sat. if the tranny is out the way you can test fit it for both sides and see witch side lines up the best. and if there is factory paint markings on the fly wheel that is the side that needs to face the tranny.
You need to pull the blower housing off. Then remove the the starter cup from on top of the flywheel. Pry off the flywheel usually by insert a prybar under the flywheel pulling up while tap on the side of the flywheel. you will see the key in the center of the flywheel. after removing the old key, replace flywheel then insert key into grooves after you line the two grooves up.
Before you try removing flywheel look for wear on the outside shrouds covering the fly wheel area and adjust if need be. If you need to remove flywheel you have to remove the arms first before taking off flywheel shrouds to exspose inners this project will take you some time
If the ring gear is not fixed to the flywheel then the flywheel need to be removed from the engine then heat up the ring gear to place onto the flywheel to shrink fit it back onto the flywheel. If the ring gear/fly wheel is damaged or the flywheel face is scored then it maybe better to get a replacement (new or 2nd hand).
Hi Snale, The bearing is located inthe center of the fly wheel. To gain acsess means removing the gearbox, clutch assembly and flywheel. Gain access from the back of the flywheel. Tap out the failed bearing, fit in the replacement and refit the flywheel. Make sure to torque the fly wheel bolts to the required specs. This is a major undertaking and even though the bearing is very small the job is very big. Regards John
Loosen the large nut holding the fly wheel on the engine, then use two screwdrivers under the fly wheel and pry up on the fly wheel.
With the nut loose but not off, bang the nut with a brass bar while prying up with the screwdrivers, it should pop the flywheel right off. Remove the nut and then remove the flywheel.

for the starter and flywheel 1400 sounds right they would have to take the tranny out to get to the fly wheel but why do they need to replace the fly wheel did your old starter do a lot of grinding its not to often you have to replace a flywheel unless the starter wrecked it somehow again not to often starters are ment to break before it wrecks the flywheel the flywheel made of harder metel i would get a second opinion on replacing the flywheel
If you hand-turn the flywheel, and it fails to turn, it might be that your engine is 'frozen". Remove the starter-motor and use a sizable flat-end screw-driver to try to turn the flywheel, just to be sure! The starter-motor is behind the flywheel, and if it is worn, you should get at least a 'crink' sound to indicate that the starter-motor pulls out and spins a bit. Yes, it is a big job removing the flywheel. You must have oil in the engine at all times!
there should be about 3 screws that hold the screen over the flywheel. If you have a compact wrench it is the easiest way to remove the flywheel. Remove the nut and using a fly wheel puller, which can be made with a few screws and a piece of 2" x 4 " metal with drilled holes the exact distance of the flywheel puller holes in your tiller (much cheaper than purcasing one), work the flywheel loose and ta da there is the magnet.
