    I need to replace 1 of the recoil pawls on my 51. None of my 3 jaw pullers will fit the flywheel to remove it. I'm sure there is probably a special puller for the job but not sure were to look to find 1. I could probably make 1 myself if I at least had a picture to go off of. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Butcher, where the hell have ya been all summer?:oops: I have used some "less-than-conventional" methods to take flywheels off of saws before, some of them a little "risky" to the saw. Have you checked over on AS site?

    Found this one on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-F..._Watercraft_Parts&hash=item3f1bdfbb07&vxp=mtr

    Might be your best bet. Nice thing about this puller is you can use it for any other small engine stuff you may work on in the future. It's universal.

    I guess all I had to do was a google search to find out how to do it. Flywheels off. Kinda a scary moment tho. Somethin bout hittin 1 of my saws with a hammer that scares me.

    Like I said, I too have done the "unconventional" method of removal. I didn't want to suggest that one, but I see you've found it anyway! Glad your saw survived! Good to see you back on Hearth.com.
