Hi all,

I'm having some tranny work done on my '67 this wkend. Hopefully while at it the shop is going to be able to stop the clutch chatter/vibration by recutting the flywheel. Since there is no inspection cover to get a look at the flywheel b4 taking the tranny out I won't know if the flywheel has enuf "meat" on it to be recut.
Do flywheels usually last a long time and can be recut a few times? Also, how hard (or costly) is it gonna be for me to find another one to use (for a 289 4spd...).

Thanks,
Mike

I don't know how many times it can be recut. That all depends on how much meat has been removed in the past to get it flat!

I don't know the price of a used one. If I had to buy another one, I'd go with a billet one for around $300-$400... Steel ones from Mustang vendors cost around $300!!!

Unless the flywheel is terribly scored or has very bad heat cracks it can be recut many times. Make sure they do not use a lathe to cut it. Flywheels need to be surface ground
