Wobble in flywheel ok?

My 454 flywheel has a slight wobble in it. I noticed it when turning it over for compression test. Is this normal when torque converter is not on it to straighten it? I seem to notice the gear teeth portion kind of rotating with a wobble. Still engages. Just wonder if the converter when bolted up "flatens out" the thing. Is the flexplate portion too thin to stay straight?

They will wobble some.When you were cranking it over for a compression test it should be fairly straight.May want to pull it and check for flatness.

A manual tranny bolts up to a bell housing that surrounds a flywheel and clutch disc. An automatic transmission case is an intergrated bell housing which surrounds a torque converter bolted to a flex plate. Your flex plate is just that and will show slight wobble. A fly wheel, a rigid chunk of metal will not wobble.
