fly wheel spacer?? anyone ever heard of?

thats what happens when you mix and mach,

has anyone ever seen a flywheel spacer? if so can you point me in a right direction?

im trying to put a LS1 and NV4500 together, i really want to use the truck flywheel, since the LS1 fly wheel costs 400 bucks new, and if i use the trany one i can bolt them together, if not i have to try and fit a nv4500 clutch between LS1 press plate and fly wheel, more problems...

so basicly the deal is that the "outer rim" on the fly wheel scrapes the block when i put it on, it seemses that it would be perfectly fine if i can move it away from the block by use of a spacer, haven't measured yeat but an 8th should do the trick, has enyone seen those, or do i fab one up? anyone think its a bad idea?

Flywheel is somewhat of a taper fit on the crank flange isn't it??

Cause of the taper I would imagine a spacer is not a safe way to do it.

yeah it is, so i would have to get one machined that would exactly duplicate the end of the crank shaft, if thats possible at all... that kinda sucks, i can't think of anyother way to do it at the moment, ill try using ls1 fly wheel, maybe i can find a used one...

nay, but i have heard of flywheel shims that will give you about .025 i think, but i know flywheel shims exist, look into it, it might be your answer.

<font face="Times New Roman"><font color=green>Don't know how much you'd be willing to spend, but I did some searching and found a used one in Michigan for $250.
