Default Tecumseh Flywheel Removal

An Old John Deere Snowblower

The FW turns clockwise - does this mean the nut has to go clockwise (left hand thread) to loosen it?

Thanks - I dont want to be tightening the thing even further..

Any other tricks ofr getting an old flywheel off....??

Thanks Bob

Thanks

FW came off easy - regular RH thread

I can't see how to adjust the points - seems like you have to do it blind - just guesses cause you can't see them as you rotate the entire unit to change the gap..... maybe a trip to the repair shop is in order.... or ta da ta da electronic ignition conversion -
