Default Ducati 250cc Engine Dissasembly & Side Covers

To jump right into this engine restoration we start off with removing the engine side covers and internals. It's always tricky removing the bolts and fasteners with minimal surface damage to them.

Ok with the left flywheel side cover removed it's time to prepare for a fight with the flywheel its self.

We took the engine locally to a friends shop to use their Matco puller set. It was a very high quality kit and we were very happy that it was able to apply maximum grip on the back side of the flywheel while we really slammed hard on the puller with a big heavy hammer. When it finally popped it did so with a huge bang and the flywheel and pulled jumped in the air about 10 inches.
