Should I get one of these flywheels?

THe block is a 71 454. I have a m21 tranny. Need the flywheel. I see a couple on ebay, is there anything I shoudl be looking for? they all look alittle different but all claim to be 454 flywheels...

Or should I just go with some new aftermarket flywheel?

Try to find an 11", 454 flywheel that has the correct GM part number on it and a big "N" that means it's made out of stronger, Nodular cast-iron. (That is, if you have a big bellhousing AND staggered-bolt starter, otherwise use a 10.5", small bellhousing and straight-bolt starter)..

I don't remember the exact part numbers of both of them, but any GM dealer should be able to give that to you.

Anybody know their part number's??

Re: Should I get one of these flywheels?

assuming 11", 168 tooth, staggered bolt starter is what you want, the bottom of your 3 is it. The ad states this is a new part, and the "opening bid" seems kinda pricy, but that should be the correct flywheel for your application.
