You don't have to pull the wheels off to get at the engine.
You need a puller for them. And when you put them back on you have to do it right too.
Give more description of what it does not do.
Most have one screw on top holding the shell. Then you take off the front trucks and the back ones too. Trucks are the wheels.
Leave the drive wheels on don't mess with them.
After you take off the front and back there is a side pin (shaft) holding the body on. It only comes out one way tap it with a punch lightly.
After you do that you should see the engine. Now that is a different story.
