Flywheel

My 1997 F-350 has done this since i bought it. It will grind some times when i go to start it and i didn't know what it was so i changed the starter and the starter solenoid and that didn't help. so today i took off the cover that is over the flywheel and about 8 of the teeth on the flywheel are completely worn. so im going to have to change the flywheel so it doesnt do this any more. Does any one have any guides on how to change the flywheel, Ive done it on a few other engines but never on a PSD so if any one has a guide i could use that would be greatly appreciated.

Not really any different than any other engine. Unbolt the convertor and pull the trans back so you can get to the bolts on the flexplate and unbolt it from the crank. Install new flexplate, put a touch of red loctite on the bolts and torque to spec. Prolly take around 3 hrs on your back give or take depending on enthusiasm and tools. Good luck on it man.

Yep, it's really no different, things are just a little heavier.

BTW: if you don't have a 3" downpipe, it would be a good time to put one in with the tranny out of the way.

sorry, should have been a bit more specific with the other engines part. Ive done it on old 4 cylinder ford industrial engines which have no trans or any thing in the way so.
