Sounding good. There's a lot to be said for things that don't wobble in the flywheel department.
Thank goodness we don't have to worry about DMFs.

However, over on FCF, with this pic, notice anything now annoying??

I see the crack. I wonder how that happened. There appears to be a shiny mark where the crack is, has the flywheel taken a knock?

These V6 seem a bit fragile.

They are for the crank sensor to detect revoulution.

Right.. I have some news, and its bloody good news too!

I got to the farm this evening, and did a VERY close study of the flywheel, I used my phone camera on video and with the flash on permanetly, and I LOOKED three times!

There is NO crack in this flywheel! I looked three times, then a fourth and NO there is no crack in it!!

Ive taken a video of it too, Im quite releaved. Awaiting a video upload to process so I can paste a link..
