Has anyone ever had the flywheel off of their #5 mower. The seal behind mine is leaking but I can't seem to get it off. Have a puller on it but don't want to pull too hard and mess something up. Owners manual doesn't show any sort of set screw or bolt holding it. Should I just take the whole shft and everything out?

I removed my flywheel using the method David from Kansas used. It seems like the safest way to go and a good time to check for worn bearings.

Jeff, I just recently removed a flywheel that must have never been off and it was really tight. I couldn't pull it or drive it off so I removed the cover on the other end, the top cover with the deer insignia, removed the chain, and then removed the lower sprocket by turning it counter-clockwise (it is threaded onto the shaft). I had to heat the spocket to get it to turn, and then used a brass drift and large hammer on the teeth to turn it. You will also have to remove the two bolts behind the flywheel which hold the the flange on the main gear case. After I got the whole flywheel/shaft with bearings out, I put it in a hydraulic press and it pressed out of the flywheel pretty easily. Good luck. Any questions, just ask. David

I have had the one off of my number 5 several times, once to change the seal you mentioned. There is a tapered key that goes into the center of the flywheel. Think mine is tapered with a higher spot on the outer end. Generally you can pull or tap the flywheel off part way, push it back in and the key will stay out, pull the key and the flywheel will come off. If it has n't been off in a few decades it may hold on tight. The flywheel is pretty heavy stuff so you should be able to put quite a bit of pressure on it. I would put a puller on it, tighten the tap the center of the puller or the back of the flywheel itself. retighten etc, when you get it off a bit push flywheel back on and try to pull key.
