It's going back forty years right enough but I don't recall any tools beyond a flywheel puller and a C15 gear pinion to lock the primary drive.  The nearest I had to a splitting tool was a soft-faced hammer. All done with the assistance of a two page article in TMX News. Them wis the days?

many thanks - found an inexpensive flywheel puller from in motion trials although they are not taking orders at the moment due to the lockdown .

I presume you have made a drift to tap out the steel bushes that go through cases where the engine bolt go through.

its stepped to fit snug in the bore.

Cases will come apart much easier with sleeves drifted out.

watch  Out of all the shims on the ends of shafts.
