How do you remove flywheel on toro ss5000 timecutter

I can’t find a puller that will fit that flywheel. Everything is too small at the auto parts and hardware stores. Any suggestions on what I can use to remove flywheel or where to buy tool ??

    Wedge a screwdriver or pinch bar under the flywheel. Run the nut on until it is flush with the end of the crankshaft then give the shaft a good rap with a heavy hammer, preferably brass. No need to use a sledge hammer.

    Always makes me nervous to heard of using this method just because I know how thin they are now making crankcases. Kawasaki's service manual is showing the use of a bar type of puller.
     
    Normally I use a harmonic balancer puller but this engine's flywheel puller holes are too far apart for my current tool so I use the bar and forcing screw from my large bearing separator.
