In this picture the crank is at 9 o'clock when viewed from the front of the engine. So looking in through the crank case door gives a view of the bottom of the two kidney shaped counterweights.

This is a view through the crank case door with the crank at TDC, so we can see the sides of the two counter weights.

This one shows the crank at TDC, but the picture is taken at an oblique angle to show the kidney shaped profile of the counter weights.

Martin, that type flywheel was used on the internally balanced engines with counter weights on the crankshaft. That flywheel should sit still on a balance stand in any position.
