When you consider the stress put on that pulley during wheel hop I would think that puts lots of crazy hammer like hits on the flywheels with no dire results. In 1985 I had an old timer tell me I just ruined my bottom end by removing the crank pulley nut on my Sportster with an impact so since I was splitting the cases I checked the flywheels and they were fine, and believe me, I hit that thing HARD with the impact before it moved.
I feel same way...I would like to see a picture of a ruined crankshaft via impact gun..even then, who is to say, that it wasn,t ruined before and by something else?
