84 gas cc flywheel nut?

How tight should the nut on the flywheel shaft be? If I loosen it enough for the flywheel (engine) to turn over, the nut is fairly loose. If I tighten it to where I think it should be, the flywheel (engine) won't budge.

i'm not a club car dude but something doesn't sound right there, you could rattle that nut on with a impact and break the flywheel before the engine would bind up. are you sure the flywheel is not cracked

or maybe the key is pushing back.

just guessin'

Gonna pull it back off this am. Something is not right. I doubt if I have put 40-50 lbs on it and it is wedged. I cannot turn the flywheel by hand like before I took it off.

I figured it out. I put the new exciter coil small outside pickup (white wire) on backwards, thus jamming the flywheel against it when I tightened the nut. Dumb me for not paying closer attention to how the old one came off. Thanks for all of your responses.
