Flywheel Removal Procedure??

I need to remove my flywheel to have it balanced. Do I use a puller like the one used to pull the steering wheel? It is on the crankshaft tight and I am looking for the right procedure. Do not want to damage it either.

Thanks!

No puller needed. Tap it with a dead blow hammer or wood block and hammer and it should come off. Might want to put a couple of the bolts back in just barely so it doesn't hit the floor or yourself when it comes loose.

Re: Flywheel Removal Procedure??

If you have all bolts out, dowel may be only thing holding it with maybe a little dirt and rust. I would put a bolt or two back in and tap outer edges with a rubber or wooden mallet to loosen up. It should start wobbling off as you tap all around edges. Becareful it does not fall off , on you .

OK, I will try that too since it is in the car and not a lot of room to hammer underneath. Like the idea of leaving a few bolts in also.
Thanks

Or get a prybar between the block and pry out.

Yep, hate to read/see the effect when a 30 lb flywheel and gravity are mixed together.
