Fly wheel resurfacing locally

Boys and girls,

It has been a few years since I had any machine work done in Huntsville and I am out of touch. I am about to do a clutch replacement on my Evo and need a local shop to resurface the flywheel. I gather that it is important to check step height? Not something I have ever done but I am used to doing clutches on old British cars and I don't think they care!

So I want a shop that will pay attention to such things. Anyone have recommendations from experience?

Thanks,

Jim M.

I haven't had to replace a flywheel, but I think of it being akin to turning rotors--just get new ones instead. A fresh flywheel and clutch should always play nicely together.

I had CarQuest do one in my old 67 mustang. It was a few years ago, but I believe they still offer it.

Most automotive machine shops can do it. if you know of a non automotive machine shop with a blanchard grinder they can also do it. No need to get a new one, especially if the engine is balanced, I have ground some that were 70 years old. As long as there aren't heat cracks in them they should be solid.

True. Then you could try the other thing I do with brake rotors, just change the pads and forget about the rotors.
