Hi Guys, Some advise please.

The pilot bush in the back of my 1979 Alfetta flywheel has at some time been flogged out,
Someone has then decided to drill out the flywheel / bush hole and put some alternative bush system in there... which was a nightmare to get out.

Anyway I removed the flywheel off another car (same 2.0 litre motor) and it looks all original and in good nick,

Can I fit safely another flywheel to my existing motor without balancing it and or the whole motor?
Would balancing the flywheel separately be any good at all?

The new flywheel will allow me to use the standard Alfetta pilot bush etc whilst the modified system was a custom bearing and not flash,

Thanks for the help
Nick

Flywheel

Yes these are all supposed to be "0" balanced. However Alfa`s "tolerances" for these things is 5 grams.
I suggest you have it better balanced just to prevent any vibration/dissapointment.

Thanks Richard,

Since balancing is necessary, while there I may as well lighten it too,

I've read some previous posts and can see there is some advantage to lightening,

How much would you remove for a road car?

Is there any particular area that is better to remove material from?

cheers
