To M/T or not...

Just pulled the tranny out of my 97, found that the flywheel was broken out of the center like I thought it was. It must have run like that for a while, because the edge of the crankshaft at the break was worn down. I have a new A/T flywheel to put back in it, and I also have a full ZF5 setup I can put in. Do I dare run the A/T flywheel with the outer edge worn down like that? I'm fairly sure if I went with the much thicker M/T flywheel I would have no issues in any event. Of course it's a lot more work that way too...

If anyone needs pics, I can get one.

Thanks

Post a pic of the "damage" and it can better be determined if you will have an issue running the auto flexplate.

Re: To M/T or not...

Not really, my long term plan is to put the drivetrain w/zf in the 86 F250 I have from Texas. The 97 is pretty rusty. I'm just trying to keep it rolling while i pay off debt. but thanks for asking.
