    Pull flywheel. Clean the area. Make sure you donít lose the thrust washer on both ends of the bendix. Donít cheap out get a good used oem or a good aftermarket one.

    Donít forget to torque the flywheel good when reinstalling. Follow specs in the manual.

    Tip:
    While you have this all apart. Clean the elbows in the front stator cooking cover and inspect/replace the oil drive bearings. They are known to fail taking out your motor.

    Yes, but while you're at it, replace the oil pump drive bearings if you are running the oil injection system.

    you cannot do the job without the puller

    grease really well and watch your fingers.

    they tend to be balky to get off, and don't beat on it. you'll damage the magnets

    sometimes they need to be torqued up and left on overnight for them to pop off.
