Flywheel identification question

I am in need of a flywheel for a 360. 4wd hardware get $140, so i checked kragen, of course they no nothing and are completly dependent on hteir computer so anything with engine swap involved is a head ache. I have a 79 cj5 with a T18, that will soon be mated to a AMC 360. I told the guy at the counter what I was doing and he just stared at me for about a minute and said he could not help. I then had him check a 79 jeep truck with a 360 and a t18. They had the fly wheel for cheep, like $60. My question is how can I be sure that this is the correct flywheel. I have had many expiriences with kragen screwing up an order, and with the 360 being externally balanced if I got the inncorrect flywheel bolted up and used it then I could have problems.

So is their anyway I can double check the part when I get it in my hands? (stamped in part number, circumference, weight???)

Thanks
Tony

Re: Flywheel identification question

68 bucks seems really really cheap.. it should weigh close to 38 pounds.. they are probably looking at a flex plate.. knowing them dumba$$es

Re: Flywheel identification question

I know this is getting to be an over used phrase, BUt if youll search for "amc flywheel" youll get several posts with some info Ive found alot of places, and some others also to try and ID amc flywheels.

the best bet is a $140 new one for the proper appplication , UNLESS you can find one really cheap bolted to the proper engine and remove it, so that you know for sure what its application is

Re: Flywheel identification question

$68 seems like way too much for a flex plate. They are only around $40.

Re: Flywheel identification question

I thought flex plate at first but wanted to be sure. Are any part numbers stamped on the fly wheel?

Thanks

Re: Flywheel identification question

Are those numbers only on stock flywheels or will they be on an aftermarket fly also.

I was thinking about the kragen flywheel, and I remembered that their is a $100 core charge on the flywheel. I dont see why that would be if it was a flex plate?

Thanks
Tony

Re: Flywheel identification question

stock flywheels only, probably

yeah ive never seen a core on a flexplate.

so its probably the right type of flywheel from Kragen
