Yes, the pedal crank the previous owner jammed a regular bolt in and it left a little play. I don't know if this is the best way to split the crank but if you have two people one can hold the larger half of the crank and the second person uses a light rubber mallet to tap the end of the shaft that the clutch goes on. This caused the crankcase to open evenly and slow. The hanyes manual says you should use the factory crank case splitter but I don't know where to get it and this worked for me. Also I removed the flywheel first.
