Flywheel removal on homelite saws
« on: March 14, 2004, 02:01:20 PM »
How do you get the flywheel off of a DM50 chop saw ? my 3 prong puller wont fit under it to pull so I need a few ideas to get the thing off. theres 2 holes that are straight across from each other, are they to use with a special tool to pull the thing off? also how do I remove the clutch from this saw? my piston rings are bad and I need to remove the clutch and flywheel to get the whole case apart. Plus I need a new set of crank bearings. Please help me here. Thanks in advance.

Hi Oldsaw,

Those holes are for a special puller. Don't use your jaw puller even if you can get it under the edge cause you'll likely damage the flywheel. You should be able to get a flywheel puller for under $20. I don't know if you've every popped a flywheel but if not just loosen the nut so there is a little clearance between it and the wheel. After you put a little pressure on the puller screw it helps to gently tap the puller screw with a rubber hammer to break the taper. Don't take the nut all the way off or you can get hurt when the taper finally breaks loose and the flywheel goes flying. It ain't quite the same as pulling sprockets on a D9 (I'll never get used to that) but it can still "wake" you up.

Thanks Mark M, I thought those holes were for that purpose, is there a part specifically from homelite or can I get one from any auto store? If I can get it at the parts store then great if not I would probably need a part number. Thanks again Mark.

I have made my own puller. Get a piece of flat iron that is 3/8 to 1/2 inch thick. Drill hole that line up with holes in the flywheel. Find 2 bolts that fit the flywheel an tighten them with  same. It will come off with a bang.

Thanks for the idea, but I already removed the flywheel with some household tools. Its still a useable flywheel too. I just have to get the piston rings for it now and I'll be up and running in no time. Thanks again.
