Would recommend it to be done by a dealer/marine mechanic as without the flywheel puller tool its impossible to get it off and without the flywheel holding tool its very hard to torque the flywheel back on properly.
Normal service has now been resumed! Thanks for all the advice chaps.
Glad you got there in the end and fair play for admitting what went wrong.
That's one of the strengths of RIBNET - people are willing to give others the benefit of painful learning experiences.
