A friend is having problems installing the flywheel. It goes on a little bit and stops. Anyone else had trouble?

What car?

Mine is a <span style="font-weight: bold">very</span> snug fit on the crankshaft, which I understand is the way it is supposed to be. That way it is still tight when the engine warms up. Don't recall what the instructions were, but I installed it by tightening each bolt in a criss-cross pattern, a fraction of a turn at a time. To remove it, I heated it up with a propane torch until it slid off easily.

Is the dowel pin buggered up?

Is that a technical term?

Mine was tight to the crank and the bolt holes were machined to fit ARP bolts to the crank. But it did go on with no special work to the center hole.

if its tight, put the flywheel in the oven at 400 degrees until it heats up and it should slide right on

Actually they told him to use a hot plate.
Who has a hot plate anymore?

They're actually pretty popular around here, I see them in stores all the time. Seems to be mostly Asians, though.

Ah, good point
Probably suggested hot plate as you can put it next to your work where an oven is a longer distance and time = less heat
