Great advice.  I found the video in the how to thread that explains it really well. 

I'm really glad i had the opportunity to dig this deep. It's been a fun learning experience.

Yep, that's the video i found.

It's nice to see the methods that are successful in a video.  Certain things cannot be easily described in words.

One thing i was always worried about was pounding on the crank shaft.  It's a straight rod with a big offset in the middle of it.  But, i can see in the video that a mild hit to the knocker won't damage it. 

When all my parts come in, I'll give it a go and see what happens. I may not use these exact methods, but I'll figure it out.  I'll continue the photos.

Take note that Mitch used a soft face dead blow hammer.

I have a 372 crank that someone used a steel hammer on and they peened over the flange for the rim retaining snap ring.
