In #3, when I said "catch the crankshaft," that's not what I meant. I mean "catch the flywheel."

Dawn, In addition to the four bolts, there are two dowel pins holding the flysheel in alignment. Id est, it won't just drop off on your toe. Put a box end wrench on a bolt head and give the other end of the wrench a sharp rap with a hammer in the loosening direction. That should get the bolt loosened before the flywheel has a chance to turn. Once the bolts are out, you can use two big screwdrivers at opposite clock angles to "wobble" the flywheel off the dowel pins. THEN it falls on your toes.

Dawn, the engine is secure right? It's not going to fall off those 2X4's

Take it from an old timer it is a lot easier and quicker to take something apart then it is to put it back together. I have been following your posts for some time now and I wished I could have talked you out of taking on your current project.

By the time you are done you may wish you had never started. If you find yourself getting frustrated walk away for awhile. I am concerned that you don't realize what you are getting yourself into.

I had no idea what I was doing when I started my project...and I sure am glad that I didn't talk to you (garageguy) before I started. It was a great experience and I would do it again tomorrow. I would never try to talk someone out of doing a project like this. I follow this board everyday and I have followed Dawns posts and I think that she is doing just fine. It may take her a while to get there but she has made it this far and I think that she will do just fine.

I do agree with the don't get in a rush...there were many times that I was frustrated and I just simply walked away and came back to it later. It always worked out and I got past my problems. Many of those problems that I encountered are what made it such a valuable learning experience.
