Well..... another question. On my car the flex disc has all six nuts facing toward the engine/transmission. On yours the new install shows three loctited nuts on the driveshaft flange. Was this the way your previous flex disc was installed?
What you are seeing arrow wise is correct however as you hold the disk in your hands, there are numerous arrows on it, some face inwards and others face outwards, the original flex disk and bolt method was applied to the new one i installed...lettering on the flex disk facing the rear of the vehicle and 3 bolts in either direction, this is the first time a flex disk has been replaced on this car since i've had it from new so i would consider my setup to be as per factory set up.
