When ordered with a flywheel, the S.P.E.C. Stage 3 comes assembled and balanced from the factory. Before disassembling it for installation, make sure you mark the flywheel position relative to the pressure plate, as we did with a paint pen. This simple step ensures a proper balance and will save you the headache of having to tear down the Pontiac again. Reusing the factory bolts and some thread-lock, attach the new spec flywheel to the crankshaft. Torque the bolts in the sequence shown in the diagram to 15 ft-lb on the first pass, 37 ft-lb on the second pass, and 74 ft-lb on the third pass.
