Is a brand new clutch. Anyway I looked at a tool that you plug in the balancer and lets you hold it while you put the indicated torque to the bolt.

That works fine if you want to buy a tool.

Brand new or not, if it slips with 100 lbs/ft from a wrench, it will slip with 100 lbs/ft from the engine. Not good.

The mechanism that the s13 has to start the car by pressing the clutch is bypassed. Meaning that the clutch is not necessary to be pressed to make the engine spin at start. Or it could be that the Flywheel is missing that "woodward" key and is spinning. Im gonna use the belt trick tomorrow and see how it goes.

So the question is why everyone on youtube or anyone adjusting the crankshaft bolt and torque it to specs uses a crankshaft pulley holder?
