Coleman Powermate Disassembly ???

I have a Coleman Powermate 3750 generator and need to figure out how to remove the armature from the crankshaft. I need to replace the connecting rod (broke) but cannot seem to get the windings off the crankshaft end. There was a very long bolt I removed from the armature end of the crank but the thing will not come off. I haven't pryed it very hard however for fear of breaking any of the winding or plastic cooling fan.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

the armature is on a taperd crancshaft. the long bolt you described pulls it onto the taper and retains it. one trick is to loosen the bolt to obtain apx 1/16" gap between the bolt face and the armature and stike the bolt head while someone holds the rest of the assembly. the idea is to shock the crank to release the taper. good chance you could bend the bolt. if you do get it off apply some antiseize to the taper incase there's a need to remove later.
be carefull using pullers around that armature, you can't just grab it anywhere you want.
