Perhaps this will help. Kind of late but maybe.

I suspect your Lister flywheel is a taper fit. There is a workaround method to get a tapered flywheel to free up so that you can remove it.

Loosen the flywheel nut and turn it out a few turns but not too much. Lever the end play of the engine towards the flywheel end and then give the flywheel nut a good rap with a bigish hammer.  The chances are good that after a few tries using this method  the flywheel will come loose but donít over do it.

The idea is that the mass of the flywheel does not want to move when you rap the nut but the crankshaft will move.
