You can use a buisness card, paper, dollar bill, etc. Put them between the flywheel and the coil, tighten the coil up just enough where you can still tap it to move it, get it so you can pull it out with a little tugging but doesn't tear, spin the flywheel to make sure of no catching, and tighten it down..... be sure "this side out" is towards you.
