take a small screw driver and GENTLY pry it off from the back. Oh, and there is a bevled cup that holds it on, don't lose that!

T'is called a Flywheel, FYI ;)

Also, when you do this, pry from one side, then another, until it pops off...

yep its off, just putting it onto the 3.3,
the nut which screws in front of this when re-asembling should it be hand tight or tight with a spanner?

yea i used a flat head....just stick it in there and it should pop off

I took a pair of pliers and raped tape arond the fly wheel. I put the pliers on the fly wheel and a pair on the shaft that comes out the back( Yes the owb is on). and twisted both pliers the opposite way.

Eh just hit it with a hammer and it will pop off really easy. If you do it quick it might not bang it up that much.

hit the crankshft with a non denting hammer or hit the flywheel with a non denting hammer:)

You'll get used to the speed, gradually work your way up, hope you like it!

After a quick read i se that using a flat head has been recomended.... This is a very costly removal if the flat head blade is pressed against the bearing and not the crank case. When a screw driver is used and pushed in beyond the limits of the very edge of the crank case what often happens is the screwdrivers edge is placed on the bearing itself and when twisted causes damage to the bearing casing and or the ball bearings, which will eventually lead to a reduced powered engine and or blown engine due to bearing damage.
Be careful when using flat head I personally find tapping it of with the end of a wooden paint brush or my small furniture hammer in my tool case works just fine. just my 2 cents
