Never heard of this, so I looked for some documentation in the FSM...No mention.

Where did you get this from?

You NEED to have the flywheel GROUND, not machined(cut), on a flywheel grinder any time you replace the clutch. Otherwise it wont last. If its too far gone, or been worked over previously, you should just get a new one

Been discussed here plenty, but put a straight edge on a new jeep flywheel and it will rock center to edge. I have never had one ground gave many a good sanding/ deglazing. Any cracks replace. Every one I have ever had apart to investigate bad clutch chatter had the flywheel re-surfaced. Every one.

I guess its all in the hands of the mill shop now.

If I had the time I would just buy a new flywheel, but I'm supposed to be heading out tonight or tomorrow.

Here's to hoping the yeep is healthy after all this...

Anything less than $1000 is a deal, just pulled the trans in the TJ and replaced the syncrros and bearings. F*** it up and now get to pull it again.

The flywheel spec is FLAT, getting ground as part of the clutch replacement is a good idea.



Where are you located, anywhere near NC? I willing to take him my TJ and just throw money at him to get it fixed. Pulling the trans in a gravel driveway is not my idea of a fun weekend.

Actuallyy Costa Rica is in Central America, and technically that doesnt exist it's still classified as North America, but still very far :P

When the jeep first came back it seemed to have some vibration on startup and the gears were really hard to get into but the tranny got all new fluid so maybe it just needed time to lube up?

I just got back from the beach and put 600km on the yeep since the tranny got fixed. Gears are still a lot harder to get into then I'm used to, but maybe that's normal?

Even with the $350 clutch + shipping I think it was all-in less than $1000. So overall i guess im happy.



Thanks for all the help guys
