Turned the Crank Shaft During Flywheel Install

Recommended Posts

I am finishing up replacing my clutch and Flywheel. While loosening the flywheel bolts, I had not secured the flywheel and the bolts where on so firmly that the torque of loosening them turned the whole assembly, thus rotating the crank. Is this going to be a problem by putting something out of synch? I'm assuming I'm ok since everything is computer controlled.

I did not intend to turn it, it just did from the force of my wrench. Is this going to be a problem when I remount the trans and run the car? It rotated counter clockwise and I could see the the exhaust stroke come out of my header (i have plastic baggies over the header opening). Thanks.

Reporting back. No adverse effects. Car runs sweet and clutch is butter. Easiest/cheapest way to hold flywheel assembly: jack the engine enough to fit a scrap of wood between the black brace and the flywheel, then GENTLY lower the jack. Let the flywheel teeth bite the wood but don't rest the entire weight of the engine on the wood/flywheel. Just enough to keep it still. Clean well when done so no splinters in clutch assembly.
