    Nice one.

    Just check TDC is stamped on the flywheel.

    I fitted a flywheel supplied by a well known tuning company that are devoid of light and it had no TDC mark - they claimed it's so people can make there own mark. What? like if you want to use a different TDC?

    That made timing up more interesting. and time-consuming.

    Not on a 1.9 or a 2.5

    The subframe has to go on a 2.5 - thought I could save time by leaving it fitted. You can get the gearbox off, but can you get it back on? - can you bollox.

    Haha yeah, made sure I checked that before fitting it. And it's in the same position as the previous flywheel, so hopefully all tickety boo

    Cheers! But yeah, as reg says, you don't have to but made it easier. Can move the whole unit around to get the box off and back on again.

    I was absolutely paranoid about this and checked my valeo before it was fitted.

    That company you used once clearly didn’t use the force. “Make their own mark” wtf. Really? What a crock of bullshit.
