I'm curious for a friend who won't listen to me !! Her son says there are only 4 of the 1 inch Philips screws from the fly wheel to the torque converter on a 98 d 150 - 4x4 ?? Her X pulled the 360 and put a 318 in ! No lock tight on nothing ! 1 worked out ,there is 3/4 inch play back and forth ! So I think its going to shatter

The transmission has to be removed to replace the flywheel/flexplate. Think of it as a bologna sandwich. The flywheel is the bologna. The flywheel is bolted to the crankshaft on the engine. (I'm assuming it's an automatic transmission) the torque converter (or clutch assembly) is bolted to the flywheel, and the transmission (or bell housing) is bolted to the engine block. So it's sandwitched in there. Hope that helps.

How do I remove my fly wheel?


This is not an easy job and requires a substantial amount of knowledge. you will also need a decent floor jack or a transmission jack. The transmission must be pulled or slid back to get the flywheel off the engine. The first thing is to take the transmission dust cover off or in some cases the starter. The starter needs to come out anyway. This will reveal the torque converter bolts. You can use a pry-bar to turn the flywheel around so you can get to each torque converter bolts. The other option is to turn the crank with a socket and breaker bar from the front of the engine/harmonic balancer. Then you must drop the transmission or if you can slide it back enough to reach the flywheel bolts mounted to the crank. Once you remove the center bolts in the flywheel it should drop out.

Automatic transmission removal


Derrick, yes those bolts must be removed in order to separate the transmission from the flywheel. You can turn the motor clockwise from the bolt that holds in the harmonic balancer in the front of the motor. Use a prybar or flywheel tool, if needed, to hold the flywheel stationary while removing the bolts with a wrench. Careful not to damage teeth on flywheel...DW

Remove a flywheel


The clutch come out with the engine since it is bolted to the fly wheel. If you had an automatic transmission then you would need to remove the torque converter bolts from the flywheel so that the torque converter would stay in the transmission. If you pulled the manual transmission the clutch would stay attached to the flywheel. It's the same when pulling the engine.

1997 jeep wrangler 6 cylinder flywheel torque


It depends on what you are calling "flywheel". If it is a manual transmission, the vehicle is equiped with a true "flywheel", if it is equipped with an automatic transmission, it is equipped with a "flex plate" which a lot of people refer to as a flywheel.

With that said the torque specs are:
Flywheel-to-crankshaft bolts - 105 Ft. Lbs (142 N.m)
Flexplate-to-crankshaft bolts - 55 Ft. Lbs (75 N.m)

I would say about $200-400. It involves disconnecting the transmission and torque converter bolts to the flywheel (3 bolts) and moving the transmission back far enough to remove the flywheel.
