I just received some clarification about the Sachs flywheel listed for Fieros: It's only compatible with models built before May 1986. The description says, "from 86," which, to me, is a little confusing.

But we would all know that this can't be true, the change happened in 1988. Larry

That's what I thought, based on what I've read here. I'd just hate to have someone buy the wrong flywheel, particularly with the labor needed to install it. And then, literally, all hell breaks loose.

No matter what they tell you, you cannot believe it, one thing you will know is that it likely fits either a 2.8 that is internally ballanced or a 2.8 that is externally ballanced. I would look at the part number and see if it is listed as fitting one of the 2.2's they take the same as a netral ballanced 2.8, I know I have one. Larry

No personal experience but everything I've read here says the Sachs NFW1006 is a train wreck for 87 and older externally balanced V6's. Rock lists the same Sachs p/n NFW1006 for the 88 which can't be. Honestly, I think the problem is with the Sachs app data.

BR's,

Mark

I have an 86 GT.
I am still pretty confused about flywheels. My understanding is that my year requires counterweights on the flywheel to account for the imbalance of the crankshaft. The 88s are said to be internally or neutrally balanced, so the flywheel doesn't have the weights.
I was feeling pretty crafty when I purchased 2 Beck Arnley flywheels which, according to RockAuto, were applicable to the 86. As I read posts on this forum, I found out that it wouldn't work without some modification(s).
Am I off base, or is my information correct?
Thanks!
