I worked on the Xplorer all day. I think I did more than I needed to but before I got too carried away I backed up.
I took the clutch guard cover off and of course had to take the foot rest off before I could get the guard off. Before I got carried away and took the clutch, driven clutch etc. off I went to Plan B.
I hooked up my chain hoist to a 4x6 that I placed across the trusses in my 36x50 foot garage. I hooked the hoist to the front of the machine and raised it right up off the floor so only the rear tires were touching the floor. That way I could see the starter and the three nuts that had to come off. I rapped on the starter pretty hard thereafter and got it to release from the engine. However, I can't get the starter out as the bendix is in the way. I can't get the bendix out past the flywheel as there is not room.
My issue now is: how do I remove the flywheel as that nut is pretty darn tight and I have a breakage fear.
Anyone help me out?
