Anyone know for sure if you need to remove the flywheel to get the Bendix out? I read on another thread you might be able to remove the starter, creating some additional wiggle room, and then pull it out. I'd like to know for sure before attempting as I don't have the tools right now to pull the flywheel.

Thanks!

If you haven't solved this already the best way I found was a 3 jaw puller. You should be able to get one from an auto parts store. Put it on the flywheel and put the post on the crank and tighten the puller. I had to tap mine with a hammer and it popped right off

You shouldn't use a 3 jaw puller. Not enough room to get the puller behind the teeth.... plus you could possible break the teeth. There are three tapped holes in the flywheel. I used my harmonic balancer puller and bought some metric rod. Cut three pcs of metric rod to length. I think it is M8 rod.





Its on there pretty tight. Crank on it and tap on it with a hammer. Just keep putting pressure on it and it will eventually pop off.

Let us know if you more help.

MAKE SURE YOU TAP ON THE CENTRE JACKING SCREW NOT ON THE FLYWHEEL OR YOU COULD BREAK THE MAGNETS. YOU CAN USE A HEAT GUN OR PROPANE TORCH AND WARM UP THE FLYWHEEL IF REALLY STUBBORN
