Flywheel Question

Ok, the my 4.2L AX-15 1990 YJ Flywheel teeth on the ring gear are chewed up and doesn't touch the starter teeth anymore. Is it easy enough to just replace the flywheel ring? Or am I gonna has to get the whole package? Just want to know because there's a big different in price. Thanks to anyone who can help

The ring gear is real easy to change, the last one I bought was about half of the cost of a new flywheel and about 15 mins to change. Great vid on utube on how to change.

Just get a new flywheel. If you replace the just the ring gear you will still have to get the old flywheel resurfaced and end up costing you about the same amount of money after taking it to a machine shop. Save time and just get a new one. While you got the trans off id replace the clutch as well. That's what I did. Saved me a lot of time.

Then take your old one down and have it resurfaced and a new ring welded on. The you'll have a back up!

I like to keep that kind of stuff so next time I do the job I have a fresh surface and don't have to visit the parts store or machine shop. I do the same thing with brake rotors.
