Default Re: Sprocket Replacement Tips/Links???

Nogig. I actually got it figured out, at least managed to get the sprocket off without busting anything.

I was a bit challenged by trying to turn the center nut without the engine turning over and was fearful of breaking gear teath on the clutch side if I got too aggressive thrying to block the clutch.

Then I remembered a trick from a long time ago; pull the spark plug, rotate the piston down a bit and fill the cylinder with a length of good non-fraying rope, then as you turn the sprocket nut that of course turns everything else once the piston comes up against the rope in the cylinder you've got it licked.
