AE86 Tech #86-18: Stay still Flywheel

There's a number of different ways to hold the flywheel while removing or torquing down the bolts. Here's 2 different methods that can be use:

The first one is probably the easiest to do and also the cheapest. If you're doing all the work yourself you should have the tools required.

All that is required is a transmission bolt and socket, usually a 15mm or 16mm works best. Setup like shown above. Currently it is setup for removing the bolts, to tighten just put the socket on the other side of the bolt. So simple and requires nothing. Nothing wrong with the f word freebie.

The 2nd will require some parts. If you have an old flex plate, cut it up and drill a hole like so.

Not a 4AG, but just to give you an idea on how it goes on.

Then install on the engine, make sure the teeth are in contact with each other, it doesn't have to be a tight fit. Once it begins to turn, it will tighten up and hold the flywheel in place.

Choose your weapon and have at it.
