Anyone have a bear of a time getting a flywheel off a sportjet 90. This thing is super stuck and I’m not sure what to do. I tried heat, I tried freeze, pry bars, impact gun. It’s on a ‘93 sea rayder it doesn’t have the threads to use the mercury tool, it just has 3 small threaded holes that I attached a puller. Any tricks or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Ultimately I’m trying to replace the trigger.

Thanks, Larry

Thanks for all the help... Crickets. It really sucked everything that I went through in order to get this this unstuck, damn midwest weather. Pb blaster, garbage, harmonic steering puller garbage, mercury flywheel puller (my case) garbage... 10 ton Gear puller from harbor Freight, bout made me P@@P my pants when it unstuck, it shot 3 feet in the air and had me ducking for cover. used ever lbs of that 10 ton rating. Still hope I didn't damage anything else. This boat has proven too be a huge task for every problem I have a discover 2 more.

I replaced the trigger, but every magnet was off the flywheel somehow the stator is still in tact. learned a lot about this boat over this short period but no so sure I got a deal anymore. I guess the smiles on my kids faces will be telltale...

ha, thanks looking for a flywheel or new magnets now. Most of my life should be on video, if's easy to fix it definitely isn't mine.
