Re: flywheel magnets repair
In place of the 7/16" spacer bolts, I've always used short pieces of 3/8" fuel hose (the height of the magnets). This avoids attracting either magnet and keeps the spacing uniform.
Make sure that the flywheel and crankshaft tapers are absolutely clean and dry when installing.... and be sure to torque the flywheel nut to 145 foot pounds... anything less will result in having the flywheel key shear.
The tool to be used to hold the flywheel is actually a tool that auto mechanics use to turn the flywheel when installing a pressure plate for a manual shift transmission clutch (Pictured below), available at any auto parts store. It's usually referred to as a spanner wrench.
