Flywheel

I am changing from an auto trans to a T176. I have a flywheel that I was told that goes on a 304. The number on the back is 3197219-0, can anyone confirm that this is indeed for a 304 engine? I would appreciate your help.

Re: Flywheel

Thanks for the info. My flywheel does have a counter weight so it is not a 304 F/W. Can it be machined to use on a 304? if so how? I'm not sure where to find one for a 304

Re: Flywheel

IMHO, the answer would be how much you trust the machine shop. If they've done this type of thing before... then yes, it's a do-able project. If they've not done this before, then it may be a learning experience for both you and the shop. In any case, go to the extra expense of having a new ring gear attached. It's cheap insurance so you don't have to do it again.

Re: Flywheel

Jeepdoc is where I got the fw for my 360. It was new and $102 with shipping.

It would be a tricky job, but certainly doable. It could be done readily on a milling machine with a rotary table to turn the flywheel under the cutter. It could also be done on a large lathe, but not so easily because it would be an interrupted cut, which lathes don't like to do.

In either case it would be $100 or more in my shop, which is pretty cheap. Buy a new one.
