Re: New Clutch on LT1 Causes Vibration
Wow, this might be why I developed a rear main seal leak.
I'm not sure about me not bolting it to the exact same holes they came out of on the flywheel, when I bolted her back up.
But I will say this, I bought the car having this shudder and the guy had just had the clutch replaced and took it back to the shop and they couldn't find anything wrong, anyways I bought it like this and thought to myself its prolly a bad clutch and swapped the clutch and pilot bushing. But the problem remained.
So what do you guys recommend I do if I've managed to lose which holes the flywheel was bolted up onto the crank through originally from the factory???
I dont know tho, jus4fun, I don't think there is that many holes, if I recall correctly our LT1 flywheels bolt back up only one way, the crank has a mushroom like shape too, I think, chit I dont remember.
I really want to thank you guys, you might have also saved my engine.
I'm dropping the whole thing, replacing the clutch, resurfacing the flywheel, and then balancing at a reputable shop.
Does anyone know our resurfacing limits on the LT1 flywheels, or do you recommend an entire new one instead? (LUK clutches huh!!! good tip! btw)
Damm I'm a pretty good wrencher definitely seasoned, but in the world of car craft there is always something new to learn. Thanks again everyone.
