Flywheel Stop

I decided that I should make myself a flywheel stop instead of making do without one.
It isnt cnc machine perfect as I made it in around an hour and a half using a cut off wheel on a grinder and some hand files.
I still need to drill some holes to pick up on gearbox/bellhousing bolts.
But I'll drill these once my engine is off a stand and has a flywheel attached.
Thought Id post this up on here incase it motivates any of us 1000 lads to do similar.

Looking forward to easier flywheel bolt torquing.

I use one of these
That looks amazing Neil.
Where did you buy it? was it expensive?
I had a quick look online before making mine and could only find a universal one for $130.
Im being a cheapskate by building something I know I can buy easily enough.

I used to work for the company that supplies them so I got it at staff price which was about $60
I rang them today..... if I bought it today it would be $63.52 + gst to me.. recommended retail probably about $110 inc tax
Im a little jealous of your flywheel tool Neil.
Getting it for well under $100 makes it a viable spend.
But I'm still happy with how my DIY one has come out.
Sure beats jamming things up with a big old random bolt between the flywheel teth and a bellhousing bolt, or using a single arm from a 3 jaw gear puller.
Ive done both. They work but are not straight foward.
There is always some element of "house of cards" with either dodgy technique.

This is where I wasnt so CDO and just use one or 2 vice grips
and a bit of leather to stop any marking
