flywheel removal

Is there some trick? Green bible only says remove bolts and remove flywheel. Do I need a puller or something because it is pretty solid in there. Bolts are out.

Thanks.

Sometimes they are on there real good. It's nice to have an earlier style flywheel housing because you can use the timing opening for access for a pry bar. I see that you have a later style, which make it a bit more difficult to pry the flywheel out. You could drill a small hole on the back side to tap it with a shaft or screwdriver. The hole can be filled with a shallow bolt screwed into the hole.

I know it is a machined surface, can use a block of wood against the face with a hammer to get it to break free? I used a dead blow hammer but tried not to hit it too hard b/c I don't want to mess up the face.

You can also remove the starter and access the flywheel for 'rapping' that way.

Never had a problem taking mine off, just came off after taking the bolts off.

It came off with some hammer work and a block of wood.

Follow-up question. I need to replace the rear main seal and was told I need to pull the entire engine. Is this true? I feel as though I am headed towards Shipfitter's disease.

galen if you've got the trans out you can do it with the engine in the car. probably eaiser to do with the engine upside down on a bench, but certainly possible with it still in situ.

Someone told me it is near impossible in the vehicle. I pulled the front fenders in anticipation of pulling the motor. I REALLY do not want to pull the engine unless I have to.

Not having a garage sucks.

It's scary how fast you can tear apart one of these things.

well, you've already gone this far, and the trans is out, so it is just two more bolts to yank the engine. then you can take some time and repaint the chassis and firewall. the engine will be easier to work on upside down and out of the car.

I hate asking stupid questions but this is a good time for one. This is more that I have ever done to a vehicle. Can I turn over the engine and work on it? Won't that hurt anything? Obviously, I plan to drain it anyway for a fluid change.
