Centerforce flywheel balance

So I am in the process of installing my new 327 build. I had the crank balanced (rotating assembly), but not the clutch and flywheel.

The flywheel is a Centerforce 700107 billet, which is internal balance. It's a ram clutch, can't remember the part number.

My question is should I bother taking the flywheel in to get it balanced or does Centerforce do a good job at making them neutral?

Thanks

if your engine is internally balanced then the balance is fine. however, your suppost to take a new flywheel to a machine shop. i just bought a flywheel from summit for my 69 chevelle and installed it and the clutch went out. It turned out the flywheel was'nt flat. my machinist said you should always cut a new flywheel to make sure it runs true. mine was so bad he had to cut the backside mounting pad before he could give me a fresh surface cause it was so uneven.

The flywheel and clutch should be submitted to the machine shop when they do a balance. That said, you will *probably* be fine with just the engine balance.

If you're gonna do the flywheel, go ahead and get the pressure plate done also. The biggest problem I have seen with new flywheels is the location of the PP on the flywheel...if its off just a little, the imbalance caused can be very significant.
