I have what I think is a '79 1098 engine which I'm planning to strip down and possibly rebuild for fun over time.
I've got the the stage of trying to remove the flywheel but it's not shifting. I've got pistons No.1 & 4 to TDC and a 2' breaker bar on the flywheel puller, Draper version for minis. The flywheel bolts is out as I saw a video with a bloke trying to remove the flywheel with the bolt still in. I've wound the puller pretty tight and hit the end of the puller bolt with a hammer a couple of time to try and shock it but no signs of any movement at this stage
Do I just keep going winding it up or is there a knack/technique as I don't want to break anything
I've watched a couple of youtube videos with pre-verto clutches and I've got the Bill Sollis Ultimate Mini Builder DVD for some general info as I realise he is rebuilding a 1275 engine which is different and they all seem to do the "Blue Peter" get some of the way through then "here's one I made earlier"
