The Terrycable weight lines up perfectly on the flywheel, and the kit comes with drill bit guide bushings and everything else you need (except the 1/8" pilot drill bit) for a precision job. Just be sure to clean all the threads with a solvent (I use brake cleaner), and use high-strength locktite on all 6 bolts. And make sure to line up the little hole on the weight with the timing mark on the flywheel.
The one thing I couldn't believe with the Terrycable kit is when I saw the "blue" case spacer. I called them and asked if they had any plain aluminum ones, and they said I was the first one to ever complain about the blue spacer. Maybe it's just me, but I think a blue spacer sitting up against the stock magnesium case would look like crap. I asked them if they make the spacers blue for marketing purposes, and they admitted yes. They figure your buddies will see the blue spacer (how could you miss it!), and ask you what it's for. You tell them that it's for your neat $150 flywheel weight that you got from Terrycable. .....and I guess then they'll want to buy one.
Good luck with the project, and don't worry, it's a piece of cake!

Mine's only two weeks old and still blue, but the blue isn't really that ugly afterall.
I agree it's an easy job. Hardest part was popping the flywheel off. As long as you have a drill press there shouldn't be any reason you'll cause irreparable damage.
