Hi everyone,

My engine builder is in the process of building my 502. I told him I would furnish the flywheel. He told me to make sure I get a flywheel for a one-piece rear main and externally balanced. The only one I see available for a 502 is through Jegs. Itís a Centerforce flywheel for a 502. I went to the Cenerforce web page and it said this flywheel is counter balanced. What is a counter balanced flywheel? Is it the same an external balanced flywheel? Which fly should I get for a 502? Yep the fun is now beginning. Thanks you everyone.

Hi Joe,

I went thru the same issue as you in regards to getting the correct flywheel for my 502. Sallee Chevrolet located in Oregon is where I purchased my custom built 502 from. The are a GM dealership that also has a in-house custom engine building center on site. They can help you get the correct flywheel for your application.

I believe that the term conterbalance in regards to your question, refers to the flywheel as being externally balanced.

Good luck on your 502.
