Try using the "correct" tool for the job. I promises it makes life soooooo much easier. Spend $50 on the 3 puch e50 tools. Get a magneto holder a puch specific flywheel puller and a clutch puller.
I finally gave in after using bull shit methods to rip my engines apart and will never go back.
It takes me 30 seconds to pop a flywheel and most of that time is looking for tools.
