Yup, the FSM says to install the starter/ringgear lock. I figure the crank deals with much larger stresses under load than the static torque of the bolt tension. BTW, the old spec for the 10.8-grade bolt is 320Nm! Wow. Newer engines use an 8.8-grade bolt, torqued to 200Nm, then turned another 90 degrees...!!!

Look at section 03-1600 in the manual.

BTW - I'll read the casting number off my cover and post that here as well.
