Hey Merc Guys,

Trying to pull the flywheel on a 61 800 but the nut wont budge. Is that a left hand thread?

Thanks,
Terry

Thanks Merc Guys,

I did try to see the thread angle but not much visible above the nut.

Soaked it overnight and ended up bolting 2” angle iron to the flywheel for back up and extended the breaker bar with some pipe for persuasion and she walked right off.



Ready to power washer and the weather is perfect to work outside at 43F after -30 last week
