    If you're installing a whole engine, no...the coil and flywheel are already mated.

    Just got the time to swap last weekend, the swap is complete with one exception the LS sleeve/collar that mates to the pump is soaking (cannot get the little allen pin to loosen) in WD40.

    2 or 3 jaw puller. PBlaster, Liquid Wrench Penetrating Oil or 50/50 Acetone/Tranny Fluid will do better than WD40. Heat up the Lovejoy with a torch.

    1) is the grub screw removed from on to of the key.
    2) tap the key from both ends in & out till you can knock it right through.
    Degrease the pto shaft with the strongest degreases you cah find amd make sure a lot of it goes through the key way.
    Now liberal applications of a rust remover.
    IT must be a strait remover and not a combined remover and paint prep.
    Naval jelly is the goo if it is still available
    If the coupling is NOT made from zinc or aluminium
    Some Hydrachloric acid from a pool shop ( muriatic to some ) will strip the rust off and allow the coupling to come free of the shaft.

    Brute force
    If the coupling is a plain tube then polish the pot shaft between the coupling and the crank case .
    Remove the blower housing and find a socket that is a good fit over the flywheel nut
    Tip it upside down on a Hard surface so that the weight is on the socket then give the coupling a bash down further onto the shaft.
    When it is on to the clean section polish the section where it was .
    From here it ahould tap off by supporting the entire weight by the coupling and taping on the shaft.

    Assume I should remove the allen screw first before using jaw puller? Will turn right side up and soak the shaft in tranny fluid. When trying to remove the allen screw I am using a 5/32 although seems to be not a perfect fit. If go to a 9/64 it is to big and of coarse the metric side a 4mm too big and a 3mm too small.

    Surely back off the the Allen retainer screw first. If it's seized, can try a screw extractor. Heat helps, too. Try metric size Allen wrench. Not optimal, but you can wrap a paper towel around a slightly smaller wrench. You'll probably bugger up the screw enough to need a new one.

    Re: Lawn Mower to Log splitter

    Ok I removed the coupling but the shaft for the replacement is shorter than needed about an inch and a half. Is there an extension or am I out of luck?
