New clutch and flywheel

I am finally installing my Exedy clutch kit but have decided to purchase a new flywheel instead of getting the oem resurfaced. The problem is Exedy only offers a light weight flywheel but i want to keep it as close to stock for drivability.I was looking at the Mcloed lightened billet steel but there has been mention that brand swapping can cause trouble.I could use some advise here guys. Thanks

Re: New clutch and flywheel

Long extention swivel socket jack under harmonic. Remove pcv valve. Tilt engine as far as possible remove top 2 bolts. Then put your tranny jack under the tranny and finish unbolting.

In my opinion having a lighter weight flywheel on a dd isnt that huge of a change after a week you will get used to it

Re: New clutch and flywheel

So your just putting pressure to tilt the engine. Don't plan to get the engine off. Hahaha all the jack off jokes..... but yes you want the engine and trans to rotate about the engine mounts and you will just need a swivel socket universal or wobble extension.
