    How to get flywheel off?

    Coleman CT200u - Engine Swapping Predator 212cc

    It depends on your riding. If your going to ride around your neighborhood or the like, a Torque converter is the best choice. Off road,change the rear sprocket to a 60 tooth and keep the chain. I've burned up two belts off-road riding in my mountains.

    Coleman CT200u - Engine Swapping Predator 212cc

    I asked my local HF if they had the " Non-Hemi"engine ( many of the workers have no clue what the diff is) and darned if they did not find me one at another location! With a 20% off coupon and my Military discount I got a great engine for a very fair price.
