Anyone have an idea...balance flywheel

Its saturday and well out of boredom thought I would ask...



...anyone have a rough idea what it would cost to take a OE flywheel from zero balance to 28oz? I have an I-6 (zero) flywheel needs to go behind a 351w (28oz). Otherwise they are identical.



I will find out monday, just looking for a good guesstimate to give me something to think about until then.



Thanks

Well guess what tranny shops DON'T do?

Apparently they are considered two seperate things, the tranny tech said," you need a flywheel shop or machine shop." ah...uh...okay??


Hopefully I will have bettter luck when I get in touch with a local speed shop.

Well I could have told you so.
Why not try it yourself?

Obtain a 28oz. flex plate and mark where the weight is in relation to the bolt holes.
Remove the weight from the flex plate.
Make this same mark on the flywheel.
Balance the flywheel in the center.
Drill that portion of the flywheel oposite the weighted area.
Remove enough metal to obtain a balance when the 28oz is placed in the drilled area.
When it balances you are set to go.

Sounds easy enough but I'd rather pay someone to screw it up, I feel better when I can blame others...j/k.


Something to think about though..thanks
