Thanks for the heads up D-Max2012.
I'm kinda old and I don't run it as hard as some do. My favorite Dirty Harry quote is "A man ought to know his limitations". If I ran it balls to the walls, even on occasion, I could see it breaking apart like it did for you. But i just don't run it that hard. Don"t have a impact wrench or a puller or i might have looked at it.
Will post back with whatever I find. I hope there isn't an "I told you so" in my future.

OK, so I looked at the starter and it seems good, so I am back to the clutch.
Got the Harbor Freight tools that were listed earlier in the post.
Am stuck getting the flywheel off.
Looked at the videos and trying it with the loosened nut strategy.
The puller is giving out in that the end is mushrooming and the threads are getting boogered up. I put a wrench on the 18mm nut so it wont tighten back up.

Even took a propane torch to the hub (not red hot). Banged on the flywheel with a rubber mallet a little. am about to spray some wd40 on it as penetrating oil to see if that helps.
Any Ideas?

Make sure the puller is as perfectly straight as possible. A couple of whacks with a heavy hammer with tension on the puller bolt, it should come off. Or just keep cranking until the puller explodes into fragments.

Got it. Went to Sears and got their harmonic balancer puller and a little heat and it popped off without the hammer.


Found 1 of the allen bolts that hold the clutch to the flywheel could be turned easily after I put an allen wrench to it, the other 2 were tight.
I guess that is my problem?

Had a feeling something came loose.. You had the same sound that many of us have heard before. Make sure you replace those bolts.. They always feel like they can simply be re-tightened but in reality, the top portion of the threads normally gets worn down (stripped). When I replaced mine, I went an extra step and cleaned the new bolts, and the bolt holes with carb cleaner (acetone). After using RED thread locker (Locktite) on them, I let the Locktite setup for 24hours BEFORE peening the heads of the bolts into the flywheel. I didn't want to chance the bolts shifting at all, during the peening process. I really don't want to have to go back in there if I can avoid it.. So far, so good..

Glad you were able to get things sorted out..
