    Is one whole hollow? on the flywheel? Im trying to cast my mind back to when my LET was stripped and rebuilt.
    I think I put a larger screwdriver somewhere to hold the crank still.

    You need a lock ther fly wheel to stop it spinning

    Stick a bit of decent sized wood through the starter motor hole to snag the rim gear, and get someone to put some pressure on it (not too much tho) while you welly off the bolts.

    It worked for me in the past

    Alternatively ....

    Once you have either one or two loose..
    Get a long bar with 2 holes in it like:



    This does'nt have to be attached tightly it's just to help stop flywheel turning..

    2 spanners. One on the bolt your trying to remove and one on another bolt to hold the flywheel in place. If it's really tight you'll need help to hold them both at the same time.

    ill be getting the regal one i think benC. and suggestions on the best for the money?
    thing is on the other end of the crank ive got a pulley that drives the cambelt? i need to remove this to take off the rear belt cover as its broken but i cant get it off so hopefully taking the flywheel off will help me (take a pic later of waht i mean"

    and ive only got one 17mm socket so looks like a bit of wood it is

    The easiest way is to use an impact gun, as they are loctited all the way in, so they are tight all the way out, apparently. Just remember to use new bolts for the flywheel and the cover plate, as they are stretch bolts. You dont need any fancy ARP ones, just take a trip to your dealers, they cost buttons.
