I'm in the process of rebuilding a Farymann
for my 1972 Pearson
33. I have the engine
almost apart, with the holdout being the flywheel nut.
I've downloaded the manual and it says you need a special tool to take out the nut. I measured the nut and it's 1.75 inches = 45mm. When I tried a 45mm socket, it can't go deep enough to grab the sides, due to the nut being recessed.
Someone recommended using a cold chisel and a small sledge hammer. Two problems, it's kind of tight and with my luck I'd hit my hand instead of the nut.
Anyone know where I can find a tool to remove this nut? Or else it's plan 2 - go electric
Thanks ahead of time to any responses.
