Lineup of flywheel

Hi all.

I have a Volvo Penta marinized 1994 Ford 302cid V8 EFI engine (Mustang?) that I have been repairing due to salt water intrusion, and I'm almost finished. Now, my big problem is this: how do I know which bolts on the flywheel go where? I made a mark on the engine and on the flywheel when I disassembled it, but I can't find it now. On the engine there are 6 threaded holes equally spaced between each other and a 7th between two of them - which part of the flywheel do I match up with the 7th hole?

Or, do I look at the resonance damper and match it with this somehow?

Thanks for all help...

Re: Lineup of flywheel

Just have a recheck of how the holes line up on flywheel. Often i have found that they look to be evenly spaced but quite often there is only one position where all the bolts will actually fit in and bolt up. If you can bolt up all six in more than one position then it will have to be worked out how to do it..

Re: Lineup of flywheel

You're absolutely right, it looks like they are evenly spaced - but no, there was only one position that fit. I bit embarrasing that I didn't try this physically first...

Thanks a lot!!!

Re: Lineup of flywheel

Even on the few engines with evenly-spaced flywheel holes (Saab being one), you can usually find a witness mark from that unused dowel pin hole.

And note that MOST crankshaft flanges are tapped all the way thru to the crankcase, so ALWAYS put silicone sealer on the bolt threads. Otherwise, you'll have a mystery oil leak from the bellhousing.

It's no problem. Thanks for coming back and posting how it worked out. Often people seek advice and we never hear back what happens lol.

Don't worry as you are not the first to think the holes are evenly spaced and I'm sure you won't be the last.

Good luck with the rest of the engine work
