Flywheel lockout tool play

Hi,
I am replacing the belts and water pump on my 1987 944 turbo and i installed the lockout tool and just to check if it is installed right i turned the flywheel and it had about an 1/2inch of play at the flywheel mark. Is this normal or did i do something wrong.
Thanks cory

Yes, something is wrong, there shouldn't be any play.

review these instructions: https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Porsche_944_Turbo/51-ENGINE-Flywheel_Lock_Installation/51-ENGINE-Flywheel_Lock_Installation.htm

Verify the following:
You have engagement between the tool and the starter ring gear. Make sure the lock isn't installed upside down.
Your starter bolts fit well with the flywheel lock.
Your bolted tight.

Thanks for all the help. Found out the tool wasn't pushed up into the teeth enough.
