Fly wheel question from Fuzzy Buzzard


Recommended Posts

A friend is having hard time finding a flywheel for a late 1980 EM6-285R engine in a B Model. This flywheel is a pocket style for 15" single disc push clutch.

When flywheel is laid front side down on flat surface, starter ring gear touches the flat surface - very different than 673s used in B Models.

Any help would be appreciated.

Probably a dual plate flywheel machined out to take a single 15 inch clutch

I have done this before on GMs to get things to match, I doubt a 285 was ever offered with a single plate clutch as I feel the torque would of been way to much for reliable service in a working truck

The B model never came with the 285 but could have been put in later.It has same bolt pattern as the 237 and old 673.Some one done what i did and install a latrer engine but used the push to release clutch.That way no problem with linkage.
