Tighten flywheel bolts to fix knock

I have a '94 YJ 2.5L with stick, stock as a stove. 4 sources say my knock could be a loose flywheel. The noise does seem to be coming from there and the flywheel moves some before meeting resistance by hand. Engine with pan off looks fine. Do I need to separate the engine from the trans to tighten the flywheel and/ or clutch bolts? Rebuilt engine, newly reassembled by shade tree mechanic. I need to do the work myself. If someone is going to screw up my Jeep, it's gonna be me!

Update: The flywheel and clutch bolts were finger tight at best. Once tightened there is now no play. I haven't seen the mechanic that did the job in months. I wonder why?

so the knock is fixed?
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
