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.
