Flywheel key

My flywheel key has sheared off. Any quick solution as to how I can get the broken piece out?

Once you remove the flywheel with a puller, it should just plop right out.

Thanks Joe. That's pretty much what I figured. You'd think in a town of 100, 000 people I could find one for sale without having to wait two days. Thanks for your help.

A puller? I believe Sears has pullers you can buy. I bought a Craftsman puller with a lifetime warranty for about 20 bucks.

Pullers are handy but not always necessary. I removed a cast iron flywheel from a 6 hp Tecumseh that had ten or so years of idleness behind it with some penetrating fluid, a small crowbar, a soft hammer, and some gentle tapping in a circle. Shaft keys can be tapped out using a drift or a punch and light blows.
