    there are 6 bolts holding the flywheel on, and they won't budge. i found that they are kind of soft, they would strip easy. any tips?

    Six point socket and an impact will knock them loose...has worked every time.

    Do not quite understand this 'soft' description...but if you are rounding them off, then your socket is not in good condition or of good quality, or you are asking a 12pt to do what a 6pt should be doing, and going to be creating more problems for yourself soon...

    Good luck!
