* Install a drop of RED loctite to the bottom of the WoodRuff Key on installation.
* torque that flywheel to proper specs
* Install it in the proper direction

If you are looking at the front of the crankshaft, the key rotates the flywheel clockwise.

There have been a few oil pump issues with keyway installation.
After exhaust removal, remove the oil pump from the cover and lay it to the side. Remove the cover and flywheel. Install key and re-install flywheel and cover. Install the pump last, being darn sure you line up the slot before you tighten it down.
Also the front of the engine must be lifted off the mounts to remove the cover. Remove the (2) front mount bolts, lift and jam a block of wood or screwdriver handle under the front of the engine to support it.
Also do not put loctite on the cover bolt for the ground strap. This goes for any electrical connections under bolts IMO to insure proper grounding and/or continuity.

what WFO said.
If you get air in your Oil lines you need to bleed them, if you don't KA-BOOM!!

So many things that can go wrong...
After the hassle of putting it in, is the performance increase worth it?
