Dual Mass Flywheels Ford & GM Chevrolet Diesel

dualmassflywheel_large.jpg

 

Are you having problems with your dual mass flywheel?  Some General Motors and Ford Pickup Trucks with Diesel engines are equipped with a dual mass flywheel. By design, the dual mass flywheels acts as a shock dampener during the overstressing power stroke. When the clutch wears, the flywheel wears. They need to be replaced together... with a High Quality, American-made dual mass flywheel (see technical note ). You can save over 50% off you dealers cost when you purchase one of our OEM Flywheel replacements. We have them ready to ship.


On Ford applications, a dual-mass flywheel can be resurfaced by removing the bolts and separating the primary and secondary flywheels. Ford recommends using new bolts when the flywheel is reassembled.

Conventional one-piece flywheels are available to replace the more expensive dual-mass flywheels on some applications such as 7.3L Ford and 6.5L GM diesel trucks. The solid flywheels do not use the same clutch as the original, and some are designed for a larger diameter clutch to beef up the torque capacity of the drivetrain. A solid flywheel won?t provide the same smoothness or vibration dampening characteristics of a dual-mass flywheel, but they are more reliable and affordable.

The application guide is as follows:

DUAL-MASS FLYWHEELS
With dual-mass flywheels, resurfacing is not recommended on BMW, General Motors or Porsche. If a dual-mass flywheel on one of these vehicles is worn, it must be replaced.

On Ford applications, a dual-mass flywheel can be resurfaced by removing the bolts and separating the primary and secondary flywheels. Ford recommends using new bolts when the flywheel is reassembled.

Conventional one-piece flywheels are available to replace the more expensive dual-mass flywheels on some applications such as 7.3L Ford and 6.5L GM diesel trucks. The solid flywheels do not use the same clutch as the original, and some are designed for a larger diameter clutch to beef up the torque capacity of the drivetrain. A solid flywheel won?t provide the same smoothness or vibration dampening characteristics of a dual-mass flywheel, but they are more reliable and affordable.
