trying to identify a flywheel

no.2331205
176 teeth
uses 11" pressure plate
width is 14"

I was told it was for a pontiac 400 or 455
The center hole is to small for the crank.
Told second it might be for Buick 455 Stage I or Stage II

Anyone have any specs. or info.

Sorry, can't say WHAT is it. It's NOT a Pontiac. Pontiacs have 166 teeth.

IIRC Pontiac '55 to around '59 or so used a 176 T FW, it's around 14-1/2" diameter, maybe a little bigger.

It may be an early Caddy. Like back in the 331 ci era. Center hole diameter for the Cad FW is 3-3/16", but that's smaller than a Pont (2-1/2"-2-3/4" depending on year/displacement), so if I'm reading your post correctly, this wouldn't be it.

Ford uses a 176 tooth FW, too- but you'd see a Ford number on it.

176T Cad FW:

Obviously this should have read:

"Center hole diameter for the Cad FW is 3-3/16", but that's LARGER than a Pont..."

My mistake.
