Lots of cracking in flywheel I was in the process of changing main seal. I ordered a clutch kit from C&C for a deuce but the clutch plate sent is the one with the little pads not the full circle as shown does that matter?Throw out bearing Is on the cross bar in the transmission. it locks into those fingers on the PP. Pilot bearing is there in the crank as it should be.
Flywheel got hot. Someone has a strong calf. More mirror more head. Check it for cracks from heat then mic it to see if it can be turned. The PP side looks normal
Pilot.... thank you for your patience with me. I will take my flywheel to a machinist tomorrow to see if it can be turned. How much is too much in these?The picture makes it look much larger than it really is.
Your pilot bearing looks to be in place.
FDC was never bypassed. I can run my truck to town and back with no leaks but when I turn it off I get a puddle from oil pouring out like it was holding it. I have not noticed fuel in the oil. Doesn't mean it's not happening though. Should I bypass FDC and get pyrometer? This truck was sitting for 10+/- years up untill a few months ago when I bought it from the county.Is your Fuel Density Compensator bypassed? Have you ever noticed your oil level going up? Or, smelling like diesel?
Thank you sir. I should find out today. Did find a crack from surface to inside middle of inner lip. How do you feel about bypassing FDC on these things?I just sent a motor to Golddigger. Looks like he is about 7hrs from you, but he will probably have a spare flywheel if yours is toast.
Did you make the flywheel and crank before you took it Off ?
