Default flywheel holder or other ideas?

any one have a source for a 3800 flywheel holder 2001 buick regal
or do every one jam a big screwdriver in the teeth of flywheel to
toque the balancer
maybe old trick is to take out a spark plug with piston down then put a lot of rope in the cylinder to keep the eng from moving
but was most used to change valve stem seals to keep the valves
from falling down
when the springs were taken off
or do most get out the big 1/2 snap on inpact gun
and zap it on
I guess 99% of shops do that but we care more how things are done here

Grammar and punctuation is a must here. I can't tell if your asking a question, making a statement or ????

Please, for the sake of the forum and all who read the posts here.

I did some internet searching using the keyword 'flywheel stop' and got just about everything I ever hoped for. If you want the specific tool for the specific application, you may need to search for the number of the tool listed in the FSM.

As per my FSM, J37096 is the PROPER tool needed to secure the flexplate.



Not cheap either.
