FORGOT TO MARK THE FLYWHEEL RELATION TO THE CRANK SHAFT.
I have a 93 Honda civic ex manual w/ abs @ 270,000mil. I replaced the clutch and flywheel w/ a stage 2, 6 puck, performance clutch and a light weight flywheel. That failed. The pilot bearing desintegrated, allowing the tranny main shaft to slam around, breaking the tranny housing and clutch plate. I'm replacing the clutch, again, and the transmission. When I removed the old flywheel, I didn't mark its relation to the engine/crank shaft to compare to the new flywheel. The performance flywheel and pressure plate, the one that went bad, were evenly marked with no distinctive marks. The replacement clutch I just bought has balance weights and a blue mark on the pressure plate, but it only fits on the flywheel one way. Do these marks have to do anything with their alignment to bolting the flywheel to the crank shaft. With a flywheel with no distinctive marks, how do I bolt it properly to the crank shaft? Does the balance weights and blue dot on the pressure plate have something to do with the alignment of the flywheel to the crank shaft?

My mechanic says the labor to install new fly wheel and starter is high because you have to drop the engine. Is this true?
