And much cheaper than a swapÖ plus itís quieter, smoother, and the cart will carry more value monetarily if you go to sell it with a stock engine than a predator swap.
I second this.

I grabbed some bolts from the hardware to DIY a puller so I should have that popped off tonight to get a better look inside the case and the piston/cylinder.
I would send that back and get OEM parts. The aftermarket stuff will work but youíll more than likely do it all again in about a year or two tops

Well I got the clutch off via the home made bolt method but I messed up in either not getting the threads fully ground down or the grade 8 bolt went into the end of the crankshaft cock-eyed and now its stuck hard in the crank.

So I think I'm royally F'ed now...

EDIT: I ordered a left hand tap in hopes I can clean up the threads I boogered up. Learning the hard way for sure...
