Question about Cars & Trucks
Can i flip the flywheel on this ranger it has the v-6 motor
If you go through all the work to remove the flywheel, it would be best to just install a new flywheel. I am not that knowledgeable about the ranger, but I have never seen a flywheel that could be reversed. They typically have an offset or a pin which prevents them from being installed the wrong way. If it is a manual transmission, then the ring can sometimes be heated and removed.

To flip the flywheel on a for ranger 4 or 6 cyl, and others,,,with manual trans only, you will need a torch set,, heat a 1" section of gear teeth to glowing red,, just glowing not melting,,, the ring gear teeth should just fall of,, then if you somewhat fast,, 10 seconds or so just flip it over and put it back on,,before it stops glowing,,, let it cool down and it should be good as new,, it will seize back to the presure plate shoud be good as new

If the starter bendix is working then they gave you the wrong starter. or if yours has the cylinoid mounted on it , this woud be bad. either way you will need to take it back to the store. flywheels can't be adjusted
