okay so i may have made a newbie mistake, i just read that the flywheel is one of the parts that help keep the engine in balence. so does it need to go back on the exact same it came off ? i marked the placment between it and the tourqe converter but not it and the engine itself.

thanks

No problem. The flywheel only goes on one way properly.

Hold it up and look at the holes, rotate the flywheel until they all appear to line up. If one bolt fights you are 180 degrees off. Put all bolts in by finger, tighten them nearly all the way by finger. When they all go in w/o issue you have the proper orientation.
