That was me. There were no lock tabs on the flywheel when I disassembled
it, and from the look of the pilot bushing and rear engine oil seal, it had
never been off before. I was a bit concerned about the lack of some bolt
locking mechanism, so I hit the books (Haynes and factory manuals) and
found that there was a switch at some point from the lock tabs to "self
locking bolts". I don't have the page reference now, or recall just when
the switchover took place on the TR6.
I really do appreciate your concern.
