Shawn, I just checked out your site and board and thought I'd add a "trick" if that applies. While having the motor(EA82) out I realized I could drill into the flywheel cover to make a more plumb hole for my punch to fit in. If you've ever tried to set one in the flywheel using the opening on top you've found out that you have to bend a punch or screwdriver,whatever. This way the punch falls straight in and locks the motor TIGHT. I drilled to the left of the timing opening, near the blot. Drill towards the rear into the flange) then down so you could get it as far rear as possible to line up properly. I'm going to make a plug for it sooner or later but for not duct tape covers it nicely. Paul
