Flywheel puller is the easiest way. If you don't have one, put the nut back on the crankshaft a few turns, and tap with a hammer, key word being "tap". Don't pound on it. If you can pry up on the flywheel, while tapping, it will probably break loose.

Hi, In Briggs school, they do NOT approve knocker pullers etc. The Briggs factory puller is easy to duplicate. Get a piece of 3/4 or 1" by 2" bar stock and cut a piece about 3 or so inches long. Drill a hole in the center large enough to allow it to slip over the threads. Then drill 2 11/32 holes where the 2 tapped holes in the flywheel are. Put the nut on the crankshaft and run it down to 1/8 or so from the flywheel. Next lay the puller on the top of the nut and put 2 long bolts into the 2 holes in the flywheel. Tighten the bolts evenly, a little at a time. This should pull most of even the stubborn ones. Al Eden

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
