Default How a Flywheel is resurfaced

How To Resurface a Flywheel



I need to replace the clutch, and I want a “new” clutch surface on my flywheel so the clutch will operate problem free.

The first step is to have the flywheel cleaned of oil , grease and grime.
This flywheel is in decent shape minimal warp and few hot spots



I found my Ford Dark Blue Spray Paint!!



Next is to mount the flywheel to the machine
Move the flywheel under the grinding stone, and touch off….


Each pass is only .002 -.003 deep per cut


See the sparks?

Now that we have a good surface for the clutch disc to mate too…


One last thing to do is to knock in the pressure plate alignment pins


All done…

So, you work at a grinding shop or just general automotive machine?

and it's the spray paint that balances it all perfectly so the clutch will work right!
