Thumbs up flywheel ring gear...........

mine is wore pretty good. a new flywheel is gonna run upwards of too much for now. so I was looking in my trusty lmc catalog, and they have replacement ring gears for not a whole bunch. my question would be this- How do you swap the rings out? I looked at my flywheel and it DOES NOT look like it is a two piece job. wth?

Usually it is a clearance fit. You need to heat the old ring gear to knock it off and heat the new one to place it over the flywheel.

the easiest way to remove an old ring gear is to use a cut off wheel and mark the ring gear with it, about 1/16-1/8" then take a sharp chisel and strike gear at the cut this will break the ring gear, then heat new gear uniformly with a torch and the new gear will slip over the flywheel, with minimal hammer or press work. When it cools you are as good as new.

yeppers, its a standard. thanks for the thought though.......

BOBCRMAN.... when you say to take a cut off wheel to it, do you mean parallel to the surface of the flywheel, or do you mean perpendicular to the ring gear? sorry to be so confusing.

just cut the ring gear between the teeth and smack it with a hammer and chisel it will literally jump off the flywheel
