1995 Buick road master I put a flywheel in now it's cutting my started keep putting new starters in is engine my no good


You keep replacing the starter motors?
The starter motor may be fitted incorrectly and isn't meshing with the ring gear properly.

It may be that ring gear - the teeth - on the flywheel are worn/damaged or even the wrong fit for the starter motor.

Another alternative is that the flywheel isn't torqued up correctly and consequently it - and the ring gear teeth - are out of line. However, I would have thought that an out of balance flywheel would also cause vibration problems. Your car runs okay?

Flywheel ring gear missing some teeth; must it be replaced, or can I just move car in gear each time?


I would get it replaced, after all, what if it failes somewhere really inconvenient? If you are planning on keeping the car long term just get it fixed. Also keep in mind that the flywheel is now not balanced and could cause vibration and possible damage.

How to change a flywheel on a 84 bronco 2 standard transmition


is the flywheel worn out or just the ring gear, (starter gear)
first remove the trans mission then unbolt the flywheel, and replace
if only replacing the starter ring gear, use a soft hammer and bump it as you rotate the flywheel until it comes off, if the back side looks good heat it in the oven to 350 degrees and with gloves on run out and put it on the flywheel, it will go on easily, just hold it all the way on against the edge it rests on and turn it about 1/3 turn and hold for about 15 seconds and that's it, it will not come off unless you beat it off again

How do I go about obtaining a drive ring (big cog) with 10 teeth missing


Depends, if an automatic transmission, you will need to drop trans and replace flex plate ( one piece). If a standard trans , again drop trans and clutch assembly remove flywheel and either replace flywheel or sometimes they have a replaceable ring gear but that is a hard job since it must be heated up to expand over flywheel

Worn teeth on flywheel


Worn teeth on a flywheel are usually a result of a starter problem such as a drive or the starter not lined up properly or loose causing the starter driver gear to mismatch with the teeth on the ring gear. This eventually wears the teeth on the flywheel away. Transmission will have to be unbolted and moved back for enough room to work or completely taken out. The flywheel will need to be replaced or you can get a new ring gear cut the old one off , weld the new one on then balance it. Best just to get a new one unless you have a real shop. LOL Nowadays most mechanics just get a new one, less hassle and quicker plus I don't think half of these yahoos would know how to properly replace the ring gear anyway. Check your starter for damage also.

Starter grinding flywheel


If you had a flywheel replaced it is possible that it is not reinstalled properly. Check for engine vibration at idle . Check that the starter is in correctly. IT appears that the starter pinion is not meshing correctly with the ring gear and that is your noise . It goes after starting because the pinion disengages from the ring gear. The problem is a misalignment between the pin ion and the flywheel ring gear ( nothing at all about polished gears ). IT is all in the installation of the flywheel -starter and gear box.

How to remove ring gear that is stuck on the dual mass flywheel for a patrol


Most ring gears are only shrunk fitted on the fly wheels. REmoval is by simply driving a good cold chisel in between the teeth and cracking the ring . Replacement is by heating the ringear evenly and placing onto the flywheel and letting it cool down. Ensure that any timing marks on the ring gear are in exactly the same place as the one removed. THis heating process may not work if there are sensors in the ring gear for cpu operation Check with service dealer for further info.

90 blazer, starter problems, grinding at flywheel, tried, new bolts, shims, and new starter, how often do you have to use 1/2 shims?


inspect fly wheel good could have bad ring gear. check torque convertor bolts they are tigth. with starter bolted up NO SHIMS push out pinion gear and check clearance at flywheel teeth . you can use a feeler gauge (ROUND DIAMETER) measure clearance between top of flywheel ring gear tooth & bottom tooth of pinion tooth on starter clearance should be 0.01-0.06inchs. can ge shim in different gauges. DONT USE MORE THAN 2 SHIMS. some times you have to shim them but not often most of the time if use shims have a flywheel issue.

TWO STARTERS GOT BROKEN I GUESS FROM THE FLYWHEEL. IS THAT POSSIBLE


Sure it's possible. Is the flywheel gear worn?
You have to be sure you have the correct clearance between the starter gear and the flywheel ring gear. You need to measure the gap between the top of the starter gear tooth and the bottom of the space between the ring gear teeth. It should be between 0.01" and 0.06". Use shims if necessary. Also be sure to use the proper mounting bolts. They help line the starter up correctly.

Hope this helps!

Fly wheel ring gear replacement


You need to pull the tranny out.
Then the flywheel needs to be unbolted from the engine.
if it's an automatic, purchase a new flywheel, if its a clutch, you can have a new ring gear pressed on to the flywheel...
