When you pulled the flywheel were you careful to put the bolts in only far enough to go through the flywheel. Sometimes you can go in to far and nick a wire if not watching

I did that to my 79 Jag, screwed the Light coil, tried re-wrapping it but lost count of wraps

i used the screws that came out of it so im kinda hoping they arnt in to far but it is kinda hard to pull over with the cord but easy to turn the clutch and turn the motor so maybe something isnt right in there i dont think it should pull so hard even with 130 psi compession

720 was talking about the bolts you used with the flywheel puller, if you thread them in too far and rotate the flywheel as you tighten the puller you will gouge the wraps in the coils.
