    There is a plug you remove under the intake.

    Place #3 cylinder (one closest to front of craft) in top dead center. Place a long zip tie in the spark plug hole of #3 and turn the engine until it is at its highest point. You can use a 17mm socket on the supercharger to gently turn it back and forth to find the exact top dead center.
    Remove intake manifold for easy access to crank locking 'hole'. Remove screw/bolt and place locking pin. Waaahlaah!

    once you have it lined up the crank locking tool screws into the block and locks in to a hole in one of the counterbalances on the crank....you may need to turn the crank ever so slightly to get the locking tool to fall into place...

    alright, now I wonder if I have to screw the tool all the way? 'cause right now, the hole I found, you can still see half the threads. Is that normal?

    And so If I understand it right, I should turn the crank until it locks by itself with the tool or do I find the hole in the counterbalance of the crank myself?

    Thnaks a lot!
