umm.. just to confuse things.. if you have a clutch and flywheel on the motor and want to leave them alone, you can use standoff spacers and longer bolts to mount up to teh motor stand (need about 6 inches of standoff and a snug fit from the spacer tubes to the bolts though). I don't know a way to install the clutch/flywheel to the engine on the stand though - short of building some kind of motor mount brackets and a cradle for a 1G block. 2G block, I don't know how you could do it at all.

nope just 10mm socket and someone to stop the engine from turning over for the clutch. Also 17mm socket for the flywheel and someone even stronger to stop the engine from turning over when you take off the flywheel.

Yea, the PP bolts are easy enough but the flywheel bolts can be a PITA to keep the engine from turning. If you have access to an impact gun it makes life alot easier.

put a socket on the crank pulley bolt with a long breaker bar and prop it or have someone hold it and then you can work on the bolts on the other end. Or go buy an impact, walmart started carrying electric ones.

You can also do it with out anyone holding it, its a bitch, but thats how i did it lol. just use 2 17mm sockets, hold one bolt with one of them and break with the other.

^^LOL...i've done that before.

Just be careful not to strip the flywheel bolts as they are very shallow. If you do, have fun grinding.
