1949-1953 Flathead Steel Flywheel

April 30, 2016
The fit on this item was very good, we are installing a 8BA flathead motor in our 1935 Ford Coupe. The trans and driveline is staying original. We look forward to the extra power and security in having a 12 volt system assisting this new power plant.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Best way to go

After going through 2 old flywheels and not finding the right one I spent almost as much as I did for this nice new wheel. Everything matched up perfectly.
Yes, I recommend this product.

ARP Flywheel Bolts

April 01, 2014
The flywheel is great, the pilot bearing for the t-5 conversion fit perfectly. The problem was with the recommended ARP bolts. The ARP 200-2802 bolts are too long. When torqued they hit the block.
Pros:
  • nice piece fits fine
Cons:
  • the recommended arp bolts are too long
Yes, I recommend this product.

August 14, 2013
I ordered this flywheel for a 1950 Mercury and when I received the flywheel I found that the center hole was too big for the pilot bearing and had to return the flywheel.
No, I would not recommend this product.

This is a replacement for the 49-53 Flathead Fords with the benefit of accepting 10, 10.5, and 11” clutch discs along with the Long Style or Borg and Beck pressure plates without having to drill the flywheel.
