    you cant resurface a flywheel when truck has hydro clutch, correct ? just making sure because we replaced clutch on 95 K1500 and hahve tons of pedal freeplay, flywheel turned at least .090" that we know of in the past.


    thanks

    When I had my flywheel turned on my s10 with a hydro clutch, they gave me a special shim to mount between the crank and the flywheel to make up for the amount they machined off. It worked great, no problems with my cluch at all.

    I payed $75 for my 1 piece RMS flywheel for my truck and that's with my autozoner discount. I don't know how the hell you're getting a flywheel that cheap but I'd check again. Dealer gets $150 for one.

    Considering I never had a core to begin with, that'd probably be why that wouldn't work out.

    need a flywheel for 85-older engines except 400sbc and 454
    common easy to find, if i had known anyone needed one i scrapped a good one i had no use for, about two weeks ago,

    also if you have an 85 then its most likely hydro clutch and 85 was first year for this, 85 is oddball two piece rear with hydro,

    Not to raid this post but I put in a post the other day and asked if flywheels could be resurfaced and they said you could do this. Now is this true or not. I have a hydralic clutch is it a good idea or should I buy a new one? Thanks again

    I've got a resurfaced one on my brand new motor sitting in my truck with the hydraulic clutch, and the pedal feels ok so far, although the truck isn't on the road yet.

    If it were a problem, no GM truck after '85 could use a turned flywheel, and I doubt this is the case. I would expect the machine shop that was asked to do the work would tell you if it were impossible.. Don't know if my '86 preliminary shop manual covers flywheel turning not, but if I run across the manual, I'll check.

    I had the flywheel on my 454 resurfaced and it feels GREAT (I swapped the 700 for a 465 with a hydro clutch). I had a NEW flywheel behind the 350 with a Centerforce DF clutch. Noy I have the resurfaced BBC flywheel with a LUK ProGold clutch. I like the way the LUK feels over the way the centerforce did (even though the pressure plate for BOTH clutchs are made by LUK
