How to tighten flywheel?

How can i bolt the flywheel on without it spinning? i took it off with an impact wrench but ill need to use a torque wrench to bolt it back up.

You may need to wedge a large screwdriver in the teeth to stop it spinning while you torque the bolts.

wooo, dont do that. if its an auto, u can put a pair of vice grips on it over the teeth without hurting the teeth. if its a manual you can do the same just make sure to not harm the pressure surface. make sure u dont drag the vice grips so you dont tear the surface.
