I started an earlier thread about changing my clutch. Well, after removing/re-installing my flywheel...to change my pilot bearing and RMS...the flywheel and crank are locked-up...I can't turn the crank from the front crank pulley...I'm thinking the flywheel bolts are too long, but their the same ones I took out...do any or all of the bolts take a washer or??
Yes, the clutch and starter are still out...I removed the flywheel to change the pilot bearing and rear main seal (RMS)...I needed to turn the crank for clearance when torquing the flywheel bolts down and it wouldn't turn...it turned before I re-installed the flywheel?? Are there supposed to be washers on the flywheel bolts??
Yes, the bolts are all the same length. However, I'm 99% sure once I loosen the bolts, it will free up the crank. But, why...what went wrong :?
I know that the bolts on my flywheel (on the 4.9 new build) do not have washers. Come to think of it, I haven't tried turning the crank since I installed the flywheel.. Think I'll try that this afternoon...

I changed both the pilot bearing and rear main seal (RMS). It took me forever, just to get the flywheel lined-up and bolted down...I was able to spin the flywheel before I tightened the bolts down...I can't imagine the RMS is locking it up :?
