How do I remove B&S flywheel?

I have an old Dayton tiller with a B&S 5 hp engine. The numbers on the engine are 130202 0523 01 77091206. No spark to the plug and I suspect the points, but I can't see any way to get the flywheel off to get to the plugs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Install the BS394970 Magnetron kit and save yourself time and grief.

I too would like to know what is the proper procedure for removing the flywheel from a B&S engine.

Using a flywheel puller is the proper procedure. A steering wheel puller available from most auto parts stores also works well. I don't recommend using or repairing points systems. I install electronic ignition to eliminate any future need for adjustments, problems, and inaccuracies.
