By the thickness of the base gasket. No just set it on and tighten nut/bolt to correct torque.

How to replace a flywheel on a 2004 dodge durango.

remove the transmission and clutch assemblies
use a impact gun with the correct size socket and undo the flywheel bolts
remember that the flywheel is very heavy so use care when removing the bolts
refitting of the flywheel needs special attention
this is because it only goes back on in one position so that all the bolts will screw in easily
offer it up to the crankshaft and turn it around until ALL the bolt holes line up as the holes are not concentric
this is to ensure that the balance of the flywheel is maintained

Stihl saw igtion timing

The ignition timing on all Stihl saws is, as far as I am aware, set by the key on the flywheel and not changeable. If there is a problem check the flywheel still has the key moulded in place in the tapered hole that goes onto the crankshaft . If it is missing you can get a replacement after market flywheel or cut yourself a 'woodruff key' of the same thickness as the groove on the crank shaft and cut a corresponding groove into the flywheel EXACTLY where moulded key used to be. Refit the flywheel with the woodruff key in place - possibly sticking it into the flywheel with 'Locktight'. Make sure the flywheel is tightened fully onto the taper of the crankshaft when refitting otherwise the grove in the crankshaft will get wrecked!

I have 14 inch cylinder, 25? year old ATCO and I am trying to re-set/clean the points. I understand that I have to take off the flywheel to do this but am struggling to do this. I think that I have removed...

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
The flywheel is mounted on the inclined area of the the crankshaft. There really is not and easy way to do this. We use several methods.
- On a Flywheel that you can thread bolts into, we install a pulling plate over the end of the crankshaft and screw the bolts in to lift it from the incline.
- Other times we will undo the crankshaft flywheel retaining nut only up to the point it is flush with the end of the crank shaft. We place 1 to 2 pry bars under the flywheel making sure we are not going to punch a hole in the block and strike the nut HARD and flat. (If you have to strike it more than 3 times... it is best to use a large brass punch so as not to mash the end of the crankshaft.) Flywheels often pop off violently in this manner and slam against the nut that is still on the crankshaft.
- The last way we do it is to use a large 3 fingered puller attached at the bottom of the flywheel and use the end of the crankshaft with a pressing plate to pull the fly wheel.

The above steps are pretty much your options. It is not easy and usually takes at least 2 people on the stubborn ones.

I wish you the best John,

How do i get the fly wheel off of my 5hp techumseh engine without breaking it

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

There are 3 ways to get it off.
1. Use the flywheel remover tool from tecumseh that threads onto the crankshaft threads. Tiy then strike that tool with a hammer to loosen the flywheel on the tapered shaft while applying a prying force under the flywheel.
2. Back the nut off on the crankshaft until the nut face is just flush with the bitter end of the crankshaft. The use a VERY large screwdriver or mini-crowbar under the flywheel to apply prying force. I find it is best if you use both a very large screw driver and a mini-crowbar while a 2nd person strikes the NUT flat / straight down on the end of the crank shaft. It will pop free and probably scare you when it comes loose. After it comes loose remove the nut and the flywheel.
NOTE: Many of these engines have an OFFSET flywheel key if the engine has electronic ignition. If your not sure about the integrity of the flywheel key replace it. They are cheap.
3. If the flywheel has 2 threaded holes in it... you can make a flat puller plate with 2 holes that will cover the end of the crankshaft and the 2 holes you drill in the plate match up with the holes in the flywheel. You then use long bolts to screw into the 2 holes of the flywheel and the flat plate acts as a puller. You tension the bolts and strike the plate to get it to come free.

I have done all 3 of the above repeatedly. Just be careful when prying on the block so that you do NOT punch a hole in the case. Pry on the ribbed area of the block if possible. If not put a metal plate or thin block of wood against the case so as not to damage it.

Have a gravey 14 hp kawasaki 420v he was cutting the grass and hit a stump if shut off and then wont restart .ck for spark and had none he replace the coil and still no spark hell i dont do lawn toys and i...

When an engine has a sudden stoppage often the flywheel key will shear. There is a possibility that the crankshaft is damaged. I have seen the top of them twist. But in this case what I think has happened is the flywheed has advanced well beon the point where the ignition is supposed to take place to it is so far out of time you do not get spark. Most of the time if you remove the flywheel nut you can look at the keyway and note that there is a problem before you even try to pry off the flywheel. A trick to getting a flywheel off that has a sheard key. This takes 2 people.... First back off the flywheel nut until the nut is FLUSH with the end of the crankshaft. USE a large screwdriver and a mini-crowbar to put prying tension against the flwywheel. Then STRIKE the nut hard and direct. It usually pops loose and up against the still installed nut. Remove the nut and lift off the flywheel. A puller is even better if you have one. I have found though that using a puller on an engine with a sheared flywheel key has a tendancy to fatten up the end of the crankshaft where the nut threads are. Then you end up using a thread file to get the nut back on. The hammer the flush nut method has worked for me for 40+ years and never broke or damaged a crankshaft to the point I had to replace it. I think once you replace the Flywheel Key you will get your spark back because it wil be properly timed again. If the end of the crankshaft is twisted... there is nothing you can do but replace the crankshaft.

Here is the service manual that should be a lot of help:
Ignition system is on page 43 of the pdf file / printed page number 38.

The timing ring on the black of the flywheel is moving out of range of the crankshaft position sensor when you push the clutch .
Move the sensor in a bit closer but dont let it touch the ring and have your crank end float checked by a shop .

Rear main leaking looking for manul to show how to change

THE rear main seal is in the back of engine so either remove engine or gear box and then take off the Flywheel and its behind it and you can dig it out and obtain another one the same number and refit by lub the inner lip (the bit that runs on the crankshaft) and put it on the crankshaft first and make sure the lip is on all around before tapping slowly in (use a metal sleve the same size as seal) to knock in slowly till flush with block ,,then refit eng or box,,,, Done..

Cambelt change on uno turbo

By now you probably have the cam/timing belt changed on the vehicle... Here goes anyway: I changed the belt on my 1372cc (identical engine - except for the Turbo and a few odds & ends) just over a week ago by following this simple process:

Disconnect the battery negative terminal
Remove the timing belt cover
Loosen the alternator drive belt nut, tilt towards engine and remove the belt
Remove the crankshaft pulley nut (size 36) - do this by selecting top gear and have an assistant press hard on the brake pedal - remove the pulley -the timing belt is now exposed.
Using paint or tippex, simply mark the camshaft sprocket as it lies with the inside timing belt cover, do the same on the crankshaft sprocket & the auxiliary shaft sprocket.
Loosen the tensioner nut - remove the timing belt.
Check that all pulleys are still in alignment according to your markings and refit the new belt by starting on the crankshaft sprocket (the thin white line across the new belt must align with the factory marking on the crankshaft pulley) and over the auxiliary sprocket and finally over the camshaft sprocket - tension the belt with the tensioner and tighten the tensioner nut.
Rotate the engine clockwise by hand making sure the camshaft sprocket rotates twice, check the tension on the belt and make sure the tensioner nut is fully tightened and the belt is secure.
Refit the crankshaft pulley, making sure the nut is tightened and refit the alternator belt, timing cover and reconnect the battery.

The same procedure is applicable on the 999cc/1108cc FIRE models as well as the 1301cc Turbo.

Good luck.

Have whoever is changing the flywheels check the crankshaft for "end play"...If the crankshaft thrust bearings are worn, it will allow the shaft to "walk" , or shift back & forth in the block. This action will def damage flywheels over time.
