    Flywheel removal

    I need to know what size wrench I would need for the flywheel. I know the nut is 19mm, but what of the hex portion of the flywheel? It's definitely bigger than 27mm. And the channel locks I got just do not provide the needed leverage or grip.

    Flywheel Removal

    I was ready for a fight and brought the heavy artillery. My large lead hammer and turbo torch. I wanted to take the flywheel off of the now trashed crankshaft from the 85. I used my harmonic balance puller and 3 bolts I was lucky to have around. I think the secret is heat, and whacking the bolt...

    Flywheel removal

    I recently found myself having to pull the flywheel off my 86 Vmax so I thought I should share my experience with other members who've never done that job. After breaking my generic harmonic balancer puller I used a 7 ton capacity 3-jaw puller to finally get it off. I've never came so close to...
