The puller was loose at the time, sorry I didn't mention that.  This is what I'm going to do for now.  I reassembled it and confirmed it still ran.  I pulled the fuel shut off solenoid and put a bolt in it's place to bypass it.  The mower SEEMS to be running ok now.  I'll cut some grass and when I get a bit more time I'll give this flywheel another go.


I really wanted to get the charging system going but I also don't want to destroy the engine trying to get it off.  I really appreciate everyone's help and maybe in a few weeks I'll give this thing another go.


Thank you all so much for the time it took to write the replies and read the details of my question.  It's a great forum here and I hope to be able to give back.

Do yourself a favor next time as well.  Get some longer bolts for the puller and install the screw adapter on the end.  That will save your crankshaft's end some damage.  The bolts you need will be Grade 8.  Good Luck!
