I have a rare bike that i screwed up the flywheel threads on. i got a new flyweel, but i cannot get the original off.. am i better off drilling and tapping new holes in the messed up flywheel to hopefully get a traditional wheel puller to work? or should i cut the thing off?
Any tricks to getting a flywheel to pop off? why are flywheels so damn hard to get off!!!!??
do you guys torch the flywheel to get some expansion before you try to pull it? have you ever fried the coils or destroyed the shaft seal doing so?
if i cut it, will it blow up in my face? the cranks on these bikes are impossible to find. so i really dont want to screw up the crank shaft...
are flywheels normally made out of hardened steel?
maybe i can cut the outer part off (with the magnets and junk) and then hopfully get a good edge to use a traditional wheel puller on?
FYI, this is on a 1981 yamaha champ... its litterally my fav bike... so i really dont want to screw this up. the champ has an ignition coil fault (that and the fact people were afraid of the shaft drive were the reasons it was discontinued so quick) i was going to try and make a PW50 stator and flywheel work and then convert the headlight and tail light to LED... stupid idea or nah?
please help this broke dick loser out?!...
