    Those things seem to come unstuck when you are about to give up. Give it one more try. You have to impact it while prying straight off. It will come off don't give up on it.

    Impact down the middle where the alan bolt was or just anywhere on the actual clutch?

    Try both. Is there a gap behind the clutch? If so is it big enough to pound wedges in between the clutch and the block? Use a brass hammer or put wood between the hammer and clutch. Don't hit on the flat part, either hit on an edge or corner. You have to have something applying pressure to push it off the shaft while you impact it. It is usually more effective if the pressure is applied evenly on both sides. If the shaft is not being used again try to wedge something between the clutch and engine block and hit the shaft where the alan bolt was at. A quick sharp blow should shock it free. Use a brass dowel rod if the shaft is going to be reused. Spray it with what ever lube you have also. Good luck it will pop off.

    Sounds like that thing is really stuck. If I was doing this, I would put the allen head bolt back in the hole and run it down snug, now back it out about two turns. Like others have said, use wedges or pry bars between the engine and the clutch. Now take a rod and set it on the head of the allen head bolt and smack it with a hammer, should pop loose.

    Yes sir I got it off finally with a crow bar and hammer. I opened the engine up and the connecting was broken in pieces.

    No need for a conversion kit. Just get a Kohler Command Pro that mounts direct with the same clutch and all. Earth Tools (in Kentucky) can supply it. Call them up. If you want a different motor, then I guess you will need a kit and a new clutch, too.
