FAST AND FURIOUS FLYWHEEL FIX
To all the fast and furious, turbo charged, side stepping clutch crowd, this one’s for you. Many Japanese flywheels are step cut. Often times when a clutch blows up, by the time you surface the face, the step is gone. To keep the factory depth on the step and keep the outer edge a little cooler, I put the flywheel on the brake rotor lathe and cut a .030” deep x .125” wide groove on the pressure plate side of the face. When you surface the step out of it, you now have a reference point to put the step back in. This saves a lot of time and keeps you from having to call the customer to bring clutch disc to set the diameter.
