Flywheel.. not to be confused with anything else.
Here'* how far the engine came out, this is your average flexplate or flywheel..call it what you want. At 9 o'clock..there'* a little mark on both flexplate and crank end.

The marks are the same from engine to engine, but I think yours will be keyed, John.

The bolts only line up "PERFECTLY" one way, and if your gut says you did it wrong..follow the gut and look at it again.

I agree... You can actually get it really close at 180* off... Boosty just proved it..

But you must make sure the bolt holes are in perfect alignment....

If not you will wiggle when you giggle

Glad to see you got it resolved Buddy

Eh, I'm sure Boosty wasn't gigglin' too much when he first started that motor

It was probably along the lines of "WTF CHUCK?!?!?!"

Noo only takes a minute to pull the motor and fix it.

Remember what we/you went through with Brads motor. Heck we tore that down to nothing in the car because something wasn't right. Some hard work in both cases paid off and both cars run great now.

I was tooling around today.
