I need a little advice on pulling the armature and, well the thing above it, I feel foolish for not knowing what it is but how do I get the two of them off?

You need a special tool.

You need a special tool. They're called rotor pullers. These devices are securely mated with the conical shaped front parts of the shafts. They look something like this:

The tool works by pushing the item off the shaft. You have to be careful to use a proper tool. Some will stick any old shank of a bolt into the hole and then using the original rotor bolt to drive against the shank. That could possibly work if a truly hardened shank is use, such as an old drill bit. Your best off getting the proper tool. Cycleworks sells them.

Proper tool,

Will it come in the many in one tool kit?

I don't own that tool kit, but I doubt it.

Many in one

I'm doing the oil slingers, do I really need that kit to do it?

I've never done that job

I've never done that job myself...I just disassemble everything down to the internals and handed it to my mechanic. But from what I've heard, if you want to tackle the entire job yourself, you'll need the many-in-one tool. Plus I've heard having their DVD helps as well. Once inside, you'll need to decide if the bearings can be saved or replaced. That is why I handed if off...I have no experience making those judgements. I suppose replacing everything is the safest, but most costly, way to go.

No you dont need the kit. But

No you dont need the kit. But I guarantee you will break something that cost more than the kit cost. I think the puller came with the kit, I have 2 now and only bought 1 I know of. The 41 mm socket is not part of the kit, for the flywheel? Make sure you heat the rear cam bearing pocket real good from outside the case, or you will need a blind bearing puller to get the bearing out. After it comes off the cam shaft end. Ask me how I know.

You Do Need

You for sure need the many-in-one tool, plus several more to do the job. I'd get the Barrington book and study it pretty well to understand just what is required. It is quite an involved process requiring some very specific tools and procedures. A simple engine, to be sure, but not so simple to work on.
