Trying to remove the flywheel on a JD 530. I have the large nut off and the 2 bolts. I can not get it to move off the crankshaft. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

May have to rig up a puller to get it started, use your favorite penetrant and be happy its not loose on the crank instead of tight.

I've learned to have patience on things like that; some PB, then crank on the puller, then more PB, more crank, then let it sit overnight, maybe a little hammer action, then more PB, crank, more hammer, wait til next day. eventually you may come out some morning and it'll be loose.

What ever you do DO NOT drive wedges ( chisels ) into the slots to expand it. Had one for a B ruined that way !
Usually some light prying at the outer edge will get them wiggling. I have even used a large 2 jaw puller hooked into the holes and applied even pressure to them. Be glad yours does fit tight as many are too loose.

Start it up & shut it off & it will be loose.

Might be a good idea to at least put the tin nut back on so as it doesn't walk off and go flying !

Disagree with one poster on starting up engine...also I would put the large nut back on before trying to remove as when it starts it may be in you lap...I would try try a bottle jack with chain through the holes....shouldn't take much but be sure to put the nut on and run up a little to make a stop...you'll need a small hoist to handle...mighty heavy for man handling.....

I never thought a JA 50 flywheel was all that heavy when replacing ring gears.. a 520/530 flywheel is a lot lighter than that.. just have a wood place to set it near the installed height so you will not need to lift and install from the ground..
