I've got an '86 camaro, and I'm undertaking a full rebuild of the engine. The stock clutch disc is worn and I'm replacing it, but retaining flywheel, pressure plate, etc. What is involved in prepping the flywheel for the new disc? Is it possible for me to machine the flywheel myself? Sorry if this sounds elementary, I'm new at this bottom end type stuff. Thanks in advance.

You should really send the flywheel to a machine shop to have it "ground". This is the proper machining required before you put in a new clutch. They will check it for heat cracks, warpage, etc. I had my flywheel done for my 67, cost me $40.00.
