Seized Flywheel

I recently acquired a Peugeot 103LVS/U3 and noticed that while it runs great on a flat it would lose power somewhat erratically going up a hill or if RPM s were increased.

I emptied the gas that was in it, cleaned the carburator and introduced fresh gas. The spark plug appears to be in good condition (not burned or fouled) and both the plug and the points are gapped correctly. The fresh gas solved some of the problem but I still suspect the condensor might be ailing.

The problem is I can't remove the flywheel to access the condenser or coil. I do not have the special tool that Peugeot recommends and a wheel puller would not remove the flywheel - at least to the extent that I was willing to apply pressure. I was afraid I would ultimately distort the flywheel.

Does anyone know where I can get the correct tool or failing that, have any suggestions as to how I might remove the flywheel. I did soak the spindle with WD-40. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
