Colin, in your last photo you can see where the tractor isn't coming apart lined up very well which can also make it harder to seperate. Not the gap at the top and bottom. When it goes back togeher it should be as close to perfect as possible to make it go better. One trick is to find long bolts that will screw into the engine side, cut the heads off, taper the ends and use them as alinement studs. Once it back in one piece you can just unscrew the alinement studs and put them away to use again as needed.
I always, always resurface a flywheel when I have a tractor split. Cost a little more but it's not going to give me any problems later. I'd wire wheel it before I take it in, replace the ring gear too from the looks of it. I really hate to have to do a split over.

Thanks, Rick! That's a great tip about the alignment bolts. I'll give it a try.
Stay warm! I've been hauling demolition material from our basement to the transfer station, but I don't know if the truck will start this morning. It was reluctant to yesterday and today it's much colder. At least the wind has died down.
