Default Alternatives to pressing flywheels out of the case

I have my 78 shovel torn down and looking for some help. Are there any SAFE ways of removing the flywheels from the case half without pressing them out? I don't have an arbor press handy. Is there another method of doing it that won't screw up the case or the crank..... As always, thanks for the help

And he's quick too!

Either get the tool or find a machine shop in your area that has a press, should be relatively easy to find one?

The factory tools are all screw press tools. Easy to make from old junk. For years I used one made out of an old brake disc with a center plate added with a 3/4 inch nut welded to it and a 3/4 inch bolt for the press. Holes drilled to match case holes (primary cover). Slight warming always helps as well.

Don't limit your self to factory seats.

The automotive industry has lots of seats that could be made to work. I know you have a mill and lathe...Press fit with a thou or so interference.

Just saying, way back if the stock seat didn't work from a chevy, maybe that ford one would with some creative trimming, hell even that one from a caddy.
