ciao flywheel removal

I've looked through previous posts and I want to figure out exactly how to remove the flywheel from a Ciao using a rubber mallet. So I simply hit the edge of the flywheel? Where is the best location to hit in order to remove it?

You need something to go in the center of it and tank the flywheel out. There is a flywheel puller you could buy for around $6 + shipping.

Depends on how tight the fit is (when it was last off, too). I don't know your bike, but I was able to make a puller for my Minarelli by putting the heads of 2 carriage bolts through the 'windows' in the flywheel and attatching them to a metal bracket and using a third carriage bolt to push down on the spindle (with a nut on the underside of the bracket) - just use a basic puller as a guide.

But if it's loose, you could tap on the flywheel with the rubber mallet like you're knocking on a door, while pulling the flywheel by hand (gripped around the outside). It's just a matter of pulling and jarring it loose.

Does anybody have a flywheel puller available or temporary use? Or does anyone know where I could buy one for a 78' Ciao? Zippy? How much would that be?
