Anyone have any experience with removing the large flywheels from the old antique L-head engines? Any ideas?

Lots of penetrant and patience. Soak it well and use a puller that will grab the hub with a good bite. Some heat application will help also but use it judiciously.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't those flywheels bolt to crank? Just take the bolts out and gently pry off with a couple of lady slippers.:truth:

No bolts that I can see... Are we talking about antique L-Head engines here, Argee?

Many, many moons ago

I worked on Continental "L" head engines. I believe some of them would qualify as "antique". :rockin:
Apparently it's not the same "L" head you refer to.:alien:

HAHA :ride:
Sorry --- I was just a little confused as to what you were refering to with the flywheel bolts. Apparently these Briggs dont have any bolts are tapped directy onto the shaft --- I am still learning myself, my friend. :cheers:
