Clutches and Flywheels
Is there an adapter you can use to mount a clutch type flywheel to an automatic crankshaft end Is there anything you can do beside changing the crank?
For most engines there is no need to change the crankshaft to
use an engine for an automatic or a manual transmission. For an
automatic, connect a flex-plate to the crankshaft. For a manual
transmission connect a flywheel.

Does a small engine flywheel need to be timed?
Yes, on the crankshaft there should be a "slot" called a keyway, and a matching slot on the flywheel, mate a key in the slot of the flywheel and crankshaft, and then your flywheel should be timed, also on a magneto ignition system, makesure the magneto has the proper gap, called "armature air gap" usualy if you put a buossness card in there is a good starting point
Use of flywheel generally?
The flywheel from an engine standpoint is used to balance the Crankshaft and keep it moving through centrifugal force. From a transmission standpoint, it used as a mounting point for the clutch (manual transmissions) or the torque converter (automatic transmissions) and aids in the transfer of power from the engine to the transmission and down the rest of the drivetrain.
Would someone please explain where the tranny cover is that allows me to jam the crankshaft sproket in order to keep it from rotating?
Underneath the car,located on or near the bottom of the engine nearest the transmission.Should be 2 bolts to remove the inspection cover or you may need to remove the starter and access the flywheel on a manual transmission vehicla or a flexplate on a automatic transmission vehicle.So you either have a flywheel or flexplate,not a crankshaft sprocket.Good luck.

How is the fly wheel placed in a standard transmission vehicle and an automatic vehicle?
For both manual and automatic transmission equipped vehicles, the flywheel is actually attached to the rear of the engine crankshaft, not to the transmission itself. But cars that have automatic transmissions originally can have flywheels that are not compatable with manual transmissions. That is because with an auto trans the torque converter is bolted onto the flywheel, and there is no need for a central hole and bearing or bushing in the exact center of the flywheel. On the other hand, with a manual transmissioned car there is a pressure plate bolted to the flywheel, and a clutch plate is sandwiched between the pressure plate and the flywheel. There is also a shaft from the transmission thru the bell housing, through the center of the pressure plate, attached with a toothed surface to the clutch plate, and then the extreme forward point of this shaft goes into a hole in the center of a flywheel, and is held in place by a pilot bushing or pilot bearing that has been pressed into the center hole of the flywheel. So if you take out an automatic transmission and torque converter, you might not be able to bolt in a manual transmission because there might not be a central hole in the original flywheel to hold the pilot bearing/bushing and the tip of the pilot shaft....You may need to also change the flywheel.
