Hello and warm welcome to the forum,
Which bit of Blighty are you based, there are tools available to borrow from forum members. I'm in the midlands (long eaton ) and have a bottom timing belt puller and a camshaft drive puller to lend if it will help.
Regards, Alan

Hi Alan, I'm down in Somerset, cider country, south of Bristol. Thanks for the offer, the bottom timing belt pulley is off, I made a tool to extract the top pulley but not planning on extracting the cam. I've ordered up a flywheel extractor, as its a common size to other makes and models, and cheaper to buy than make my own, I was thinking more of crankcase or crankshaft pullers, but the motor seems to come apart relatively easily (apart from the rusted studs!). The rebuild was prompted by a lack of compression due to worn out bore and rings. Corrosion in the flywheel section and crud in the bottom of the motor prompted a full rebuild. Hopefully I won't need too many parts, some engine parts seem a bit scarce.

Regards Malcolm

Thanks Gary, I had seen your website and no doubt will be in touch sometime.

I will enjoy this engine rebuild better than the rotax powered BMW twins, they are a nightmare.

Malcolm.
