A:

You really need a flywheel tool for this, but since Tecumseh has gone out of business their pullers are getting really hard to find.

You can do this at your own risk (for damaging the flywheel). Remove the engine shroud. Remove the nut and cup from the top of the flywheel. Screw the nut back onto the crankshaft until the nut is just above level with the crankshaft end. Now put a pry-bar under the edge of the flywheel and pry upward (just solid pressure, don't fight it). Now use a hammer or mallet to smack the flywheel nut. This should pop the flywheel lose. You can go to YouTube and search for "flywheel removal" to see all kinds of videos with this procedure.
