Default flywheel alignment?

New engine is going in later this week

I noticed in the Haynes manual that you are supposed to mark the Flywheel so you can re-allign it. I'm putting a Fidanza flywheel on the new motor, is there any certain way it is supposed to line up?

Make sure you get the correct bolts to match the threads in the flywheel when mounting the pressure plate. The ones from your OEM flywheel are a different thread and will destroy the threads in your Fidanza
