- Remove the transmission as outlined in .
- Remove the six or eight bolts attaching the flywheel to the crankshaft flange. Remove the flywheel.
- 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.
