How do I know if my flywheel is still good?

Check the gear teeth of your old flywheel if it is still on the engine and look where the teeth engage the starter. Does the starter point toward the front of the engine?

Where do you place the flywheel?

The flywheel is placed face up on a flat expendable shop table (not the kitchen table). Check the gear teeth of your old flywheel if it is still on the engine and look where the teeth engage the starter.

How do you expand the ring gear on a flywheel?

Continue heating and checking with the metal pencil rod until it fits within the sides of the ring gear. The rod should rattle back and forth in the heated ring gear. Once the ring gear has expanded, with your heat protective welding gloves on your hands, grab the (hot!) ring off the rod and put it around the flywheel.

Do engine flywheels need replacing?

Engine flywheels are normally highly durable, but if the teeth of the flywheel become worn, which they will eventually, the flywheel will need replacing. The replacement process itself is not overly complicated, it is accessing the flywheel which is by far the hardest part.
