    Thanks for your response!!

    The flywheel will have to be threaded off the motor shaft.
    If the replacement motor does not include a flywheel, remove the
    flywheel from the old motor and place it on the new motor. Hold the
    motor axle on the end of the motor opposite the flywheel with a pair of
    vice grips and twist the flywheel off. NOTE: The motor axle threads have reverse threading. Turn the flywheel clockwise to remove it from the motor.

    Note - For your guide though, on the Proform motors, the flywheel just unscrews, but it is right hand turn to remove, unlike a conventional nut and bolt. You put the back end of the motor in the vice, and made a small tool that would allow you to turn the flywheel with some tortion,. It would come right off.

    If you have any questions, revert and i would be glad to answer.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks!!

Hello,

Park the vehicle on a level floor. Jack up the front, then the back, of the car to place one jack stand under four supporting frame points to carry the vehicle at least 24 inches off the ground to replace the flywheel.
Lift the hood of the vehicle and remove the red positive battery cable from the positive post of the automotive battery. Pull the loose cable end away from the battery and secure in place when you replace the flywheel.

Separate the drive shaft from the rear of the automatic transmission. For rear-wheel drive vehicles this involves disconnecting the universal joint where it secures to the rear axle yolk. Remove the two U-bolts and turn the axle until the universal jointsfrees from the yoke. Pull the drive shaft out of the tail housing of the transmission and place off to the side.
Loosen and remove the torque converter bolts that secure the transmission to the flywheel on an automatic transmission. Six bolts, three short and three long, will need to be removed with the use of one or two closed-end spanner wrenches. Each bolt should be loosened before being removed to eliminate pressure being applied to the remaining bolts unevenly after most have been removed. Protect the parts that are still good by using this procedure for all fasteners that have multiple securing points that need to be tighten or loosened evenly when you replace the flywheel
Take care.

1998 jeep grand cherokee starter. Not engaging to flywheel. Works fine when manually jumped from battery.


Sometimes I take the starter motor off the vehicle. Lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from battery to starter motor, it should do two things, kick out the drive gear and spin. Do you have a flywheel cover that you can remove and watch the starter drive gear engage the flywheel? Also, check the flywheel teeth.

I have a 99 dodge intrepid 3.2, I replaced the old starter with a new one and now the solenoid drive will not engage the flywheel, help me please


Did you check out the basics? Does the starter motor spin and kick out the drive gear? Did you check the flywheel teeth? Did the old starter motor use shims?

Hello Glen, I suggest you remove the flywheel cover and inspect the teeth on the starter drive and flywheel. Some engines have plastic teeth and do not hold up well to wear and may even break off. Another problem could be the starter drive may be stuck and not engaging the flywheel.

Starter makes a screeching noise sometimes just after the motor starts


Replace the starter before it ruins the flywheel. You have a worn out drive that applies to the flywheel. Flywheels are very very hard to change, in fact you can change 10 or 15 starters in the same time changing one flywheel

My car is making a whinning noise when i try to start it and i won't start


Can you tell if the engine is actually turning over? My first thought would be that the bolts holding your starter on the engine have loosened and the starter is not making contact with the flywheel. Another possibility would be that the flywheel has lost some teeth. Safely jack up the car and see first if the starter motor is loose, if not, open the inspection plate under the flywheel and get a visual look at where the starter and flywheel come together. If neither seem to be happening, then the starter itself may need replacing.

Shearing of flywheel pin on starting 12 hp snapper


When you the key this time, put the flywheel on first then the key but this time use a little grit between the flywheel and crankshaft. Something like grinding compound. It will keep the flywheel from moving plus make sure you torque down the flywheel nut good.

Deck turns on but doesn't do anything else. Motor runs.


The main flat belt you describe is probably the capstan belt. The "flywheel" you describe drives the capstan. I don't know the model number of your deck (it would help if you could say what it is), but I'm pretty sure that the flat belt should go around the big flywheel and then around a motor pulley that should be very close to the flywheel. The motor should spin the flywheel even if the play/FF/RW buttons are not engaged. This might sound funny, but the other "O" ring belts might be very important (control motor belts) or not that important at all (tape counter belts)--it depends on the model number of the deck. One more thing: Every healthy capstan belt I've ever seen is NOT sticky and does NOT glom onto itself. That belt sounds like it is very old and needs to be replaced.
