I put a bar throught the u-joint of the drive shaft on the back side of the engine, and that worked for me :)

mine has been outside for 4 years, and came off no problems, just try soime wd40, and put a socket on it and should come off easily.

Be Careful Of Your Grease Fitting When You Use A Bar. Other Than That It Should Go, My 990 Spent Its Life Out Side And It Came Off Good Last Year, Too.

Remove the spark plug and stuff a section of rope to bottom out the piston so you can turn the nut off without the engine turning over. Works for me.
