95 F250 Dual Stage Flywheel Bad:

I have a 95 F250 PSD that is in need of a new flywheel. I had it in the Ford dealer for a recall and he noticed from turning the truck on and off that I had a shake. He said these trucks were famous for this. What has everyone replaced this with. I have seen some solid flywheel/clutch kits and I want to replace with a good one.

There are a number of Single Mass Flywheel/Clutch kits out there. I put a SouthBend Clutch Con-O kit in my 94 and was very happy with it (I think it's one of the better ones out there). You will get some "gear rollover" noise at slow speeds and low RPMs with a SMFW, but I didn't find it objectionable. The pedal force is a lot lighter too. Cheers!

Luk in both ours. There's talk on another site about overfilling the tranny possibly quieting the gear rollover noise. First time you use the new clutch you'll prob. chirp the tires; then you get used to it, and the lighter pedal feel.

DO NOT put this off. That dual-mass flywheel (dum-mass?) has a gazillion little parts holding the two "masses" together. Some folks recently have actually seen loose bearings and bits of plastic and spring fall out when they remove the clutch inspection plate. If you remove yours, and if you can rotate the flywheel at all, that means things are coming apart. If anything comes loose from it while it's really spinning fast, it can grenade through the tranny case.

(BTW, if it the original inspection plate, there's a mod you can do to keep it from damaging your oil pan; reply if you're interested.)

madpogue, I am getting ready to order a kit. I am looking at all the kits available. I don't pull anything heavy any more but I plan to keep the truck for a while. The truck is all original and with only 80,000 miles. But I am interested in info on the mod that you have mentioned to keep from damaging the oil pan.

If it's the old inpection cover, you just need to trim off the lip on the front of the cover. There is also an updated cover that took care of the problem, but when I bought one about 4 or 5 years ago, it was $45 (I modded my old one, but the bolt hole ears finally cracked). Cheers!

^^^^^ +1; replacement cover is crazy expensive. I used a cut-off tool on my wife's. When you take the cover off, you can see how the lip bumps up against the engine oil pan; it can sometimes "saw" through the pan.
