Align the dowel pin on the crankshaft to the smallest hole on the dual mass flywheel.

How do i to change a front main seal ?


You will need to make a tool. On the pulley there's two 10mm holes. Get a piece of 1"x1/8" wall square tube (about 3' should do.). At one end, drill two holes offset to one edge for some 10mm bolts that will fit in the holes on the pulley. The offset is so you can get a socket on the main crank nut. Fit the square bar so one end rests on the subframe. Now you can fit a big bar on the pully nut and undo it.

Bolt pattern conversions
mm in
A bolt pattern or lug pattern is the diameter of a circle formed by the centers of the wheel lugs. Bolt patterns can be 4, 5, 6, or 8 lug holes. A bolt pattern of 4x100 would indicate a 4 lug pattern on a circle with a diameter of 100 mm. The bolt pattern is comprised of two numbers, the first indicates how many bolt holes are on the wheel, and the second describes how far apart they are. A bolt pattern of 5-115mm would mean the wheel has five bolt holes and they are 115mm apart (measured across the center of the wheel).

Offset

The lists of bolt patterns to the right includes OS (offset) information in the last two columns. The offset of a wheel is the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the true centerline of the rim. A positive offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is positioned in front of the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This in effect brings the tire in to the fender well more. Conversely, a negative offset means the mounting surface of the wheel is behind the true centerline of the rim / tire assembly. This will cause the tire to stick out away from the vehicle.
The bolt patterns are marked as either H, M, or L
H = High positive offset - FWD Typically +45, 40, 35 offset
M = Medium offset - RWD Typically +20 offset
L = Low offset - RWD Typically 0 offset

Dual bolt patterns


More often called "dual drilled", some manufacturers (usually cheaper ones) are building their wheels with two bolt patterns. This expands the number of fitments the wheel applies to. For example, a wheel with a 4-100/114.3 bolt pattern has 8 lug holes and will fit both 4-100mm and 4-114.3mm fitments. Without close examination, certain wheels can be mistaken for dual bolt pattern wheels, as some manufacturers will sometimes add a second set of holes only for aesthetics and weight savigs. The holes are often straight through and have no mating surface for the wheel lug nuts.

Centerbore

Centerbore relates to the center hole in the wheel that centers the wheel on the hub of the car. Since most wheels are mass produced, they have a large center bore to accommodate several different vehicles. If this is the case, it is recommended that a hub ring is used. Hub rings are hard plastic or metal ring that fits between the wheel and the vehicle. This centers the wheel perfectly on the hub ensuring that there is no run out when the wheel is installed on to the vehicle. Without hub rings it is possible to get vibrations even if the wheel / tire assembly is perfectly balanced.

How do i check for the timing marks on the automatic flywheel for the vw passat v6 amx engine


Hi. The amx does not ahve a flywheel pick up. the crank sensor g28 is on the side of the block. The flywheel have offset bolts so can only be fitted in the correct position. The best way to set tdc is with a special tool that goes into the side of the block at g28 sensors hole, or to set tdc with a dial gauge on cylinder 1. I don't yhink the flywheel fitment is the issue with this vehicle. Have you disconnected the air mass meter and run the car to see if it is beter? The air mass meter commonly fails when disturbed during repairs.

1989 vette L98 external balance eng. w/6 speed ZF trans. installed new LUK (GM) dual mass flywheel w/ OEM replacement clutch/pressure plate assy. - eng. is out of balance. what is proper allignment for...


The clutch disk and pressure plate should be balanced and can be mounted in any position that the mounting holes line up. If there is a hole for an alignment dowl, then it is recommended to do so. otherwise it doesnt matter.

The internal balancing is taken care of by the flywheel only.

2003 Tiburon 6 spd clutch replacement now tranny won't respond


Possibility, you may have intalled the clutch disk backwards.... if so, the disk hub is torqued against the crankshaft hub preventing engagement of the clutch. 2003 TIBUORN DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL AND CLUTCH DISC ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION PROCEDURE DESCRIPTION: The 2003 MY 2.7L Tiburon vehicle equipped with the 6-speed manual transaxle employs a dual mass flywheel system. The 2003 Tiburon Shop Manual does not show the clutch disc assembly with the dual mass flywheel. This bulletin provides information about how to assemble these components. NOTE Although it is possible to assemble the clutch disc with either side facing the flywheel surface, only the assembly of these two parts shown in this bulletin is correct.
PARTS ASSEMBLY:
  1. Attach the dual mass flywheel to the engine crankshaft assembly.
  2. Identify the clutch disc flange side and the collar side as shown. 0240025a.gif
  3. Install the collar side of the clutch disc on the dual mass flywheel surface so that the flange side is facing the pressure plate side as shown. 0240025b.gif
  4. Attach the pressure plate to the dual mass flywheel and complete assembly of the remaining components per the Shop Manual procedures. 0240025c.gif
