Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
You can remove one of your spark plugs, and fill your cylinder with some soft rope, through your spark plug hole. The type rope used in lawnmowers, and trimmers works really well for this purpose. The rope will safely block your piston, as it rises to the top of your cylinder, preventing rotation of your flywheel, as you loosen your nut.
Loosen your flywheel nut counterclockwise. We can continue from here. Thanks!
