There is a Place called Slicks in Mason that has Tons of Old bikes. It's a Snowmobile/Motorcycle Grave yard. I would give them a Call, they really know their stuff.

There is also a Place in Mt Pleasant that is similar but even larger. Just north Of Meijer on Mission.

Ive had bad luck with slicks, but it was years ago. Way to much $$$$ for everything.

You get to this point, you should rethink repair and start looking for another bike.

You need a flywheel puller to thread in to the inside of the mag (flywheel) and press against the end of the crank to pop it off.

kinda like a harmonic balancer puller? if so, there is nothing on the flywheel to thread into. just a keyway, and multiple phillips head screws around the outside.
