To remove the flywheel, there are several techniques. First, there is a nut on the flywheel which must be removed. To do this, you must somehow prevent the flywheel from turning while you are trying to remove the nut. There are several ways to do this as well. You can use a [[piston stop]], you can do [[the rope trick]], or you can hold it with a chain, or strap wrench. Once you have stopped the motion of the flywheel, you can remove the nut.

However, once the flywheel nut is removed, you still must separate the flywheel from the taper on the crankshaft. You can do this by utilizing a special tool, called a [[flywheel puller]], or you can try to knock it off using a rubber mallet as demonstrated in the link below.
