    Does anyone know the nut size of the flywheel retaining nut on a Briggs 16 Vanguard twin? Do you need a special puller to remove the flywheel ?

    i would get the nut and puller from your briggs distributor. that way you will be sure they will work.

    Just to make my question clear,what I meant to ask is what size socket fits the flywheel nut.

    A ruler or tape measure will quickly tell you that. Why in the world
    do you want to remove the flywheel?
  5. Book doesn't give me nut size, I seem to remember 3/4 or 13/16 or 7/8, so not too much help there.
    Just a regular wheel puller to remove flywheel.

    I had to remove the flywheel and alternator to put it on another engine that didn't come with an alternator.

    The socket size is 1 3/16".

    Thanks for the replies!
