I am trying to swap the engine on a 1956 Country Squire. I'm putting a K241 on it in place of the old Briggs.I am having trouble removing the coupler that holds the clutch assembly from the old engine. I have soaked it in penetrating oil and also tried heating it. All to no avail it will not budge. Any suggestions? It is still inside the bell housing which is part of the side plate of the motor. So no way other than a crow bar on each side through the slots, to do any leverage. Half scared to try a whack or two with a dead blow hammer to see if it will slide inward to start with! I do know for sure I'll have to get another bell housing but was hoping not to get a new coupler!
