Where can I get a buick 455 manual transmission flywheel, used or new...????
TA has brand new billet $300- http://www.taperformance.com/proddetail.asp?prod=TA_2038
I found a used one on the board that needs to surfaced for around $100. They are out here..
Make sure "somebody" sells you the right size flywheel bolts.
i got a few sets of wrong sets of bolts if anyone needs some....
Marc, when you can also get a steel flywheel from TA Performance and when you do finally get the right size bolts check the length to make sure they are not too long as they may interfere with non rotating parts?
Marc, try posting in the "parts wanted" that you are looking for a flywheel, you may have some luck there for a good used one?
Watch out for NAPA & Autozone (Kragen, Checker, whatever) they list a "flywheel" for $40+ bucks. It is a flexplate....... Did this a few times at different places, the 18+ year old kid always assured me it was for a manual trans.
Save you some agregvation
The T/A part is very nice & works great

What do you guys mean by the right size bolts?, You mean the bolts that connect the flywheel to the crankshaft or the bolts that connect the flywheel to the pressure plate??? Also, I have an automatic right now, can I use the bolts holding my flexplate to the crank on the flywheel to the crank??? Thanks
If not, BadBrad, are you trying to send me the message that you have those bolts...???
...And by the way, if the bolts are too long, why not just cut them with a grinder...???...
The problem is someone did not know they were too long and it cost them an engine rebuild.
Stock flywheel is a different thickness than an aftermarket. No - you cant use flexplate bolts to install a stock or aftermarket flywheel on a crank. Some folks will unknowingly sell you the wrong bolts even indicating they fit everything. Point is - always check that they are "correct."
I have a new NOS flywheel that I may sell. Seems like I paid $350 for it.

Yeah I know I saw that one this morning, just too late...
I saw the one for TA (Billet) Performance, symmetrical or asymmetrical crakshaft bolt pattern?? What does that mean? Will my stock mounting bolts work, will my stock starter work okay?
