Flywheel and Ring Gear

Print

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



The ring gear is an integral part of the flywheel and is not replaceable.

  1. Remove the transmission assembly from the vehicle.
  2.  
  3. Remove the bolts attaching the flywheel to the crankshaft flange, then remove the flywheel.
  4.  

To install:

  1. Inspect the flywheel for cracks, and inspect the ring gear for burrs or worn teeth. Replace the flywheel if any damage is apparent. Remove burrs with a mill file.
  2.  
  3. Install the flywheel. Most flywheels will only attach to the crankshaft in one position, as the bolt holes are unevenly spaced and/or the crankshaft is fitted with a dowel pin. Install the bolts and torque to specification using a criss-cross pattern.
