So I just did some measuring and turns out the machine shop that did my flywheel didn't cut it down to 0.820 like I instructed, it was balanced to the flex plate but not cut down... Is this flywheel ruined? the balancing holes were drilled in the back side, if it gets cut down to 0.820 wont the holes then be taking away too much weight and cause serious balance problems? Can it be fixed or did they ruin it?


Everything imaginable is stopping me from doing my swap.

Have them cut it down and check the ballance, if the holes have taken too much off one side they can drill the other side, you will just end up with a lighter flywheel which could be a good thing. Larry

Yeah they are redoing it... I guess as long as it can be corrected its not too bad... And the more weight that can be taken off the better. I just worry too much I guess.
