Any automotive machine shop should be able to do it. Cost me $30 here locally.

I purchased one from a Checker Auto for less money than having a machine shop do it. You might want to check on it.

It's cheap insurance. It runs about $30. I use the local AAMCO when I need mine done.

You never replace a clutch disc without resurfacing. Just one of those things you do, saves taking it all apart again when you find your clutch not functioning properly. Its kind of like a pilot bushing, crazy not to replace it every time you are in there, a lot of work for a $10 part.

Why wouldn't you? If you already have everything apart it's definately wise to spend the extra 30 bucks or so and increse the life of your clutch. Pretty much any machine shop will resurface a flywheel.
