I like sophisticated engineering solutions.

Here you can see the main bearing housing spezial puller tool #15c serving double duty to hold the crank in position until I torque up the clutch carrier out back.

Failing to do this (secure the crank position in the block) can permit the crank to move forward and allow inner rear thrust bearing to fall off it's locating pins, which will cause "problems" and "issues". Speaking euphemistically...
