Replacing a ring gear
On a manual transmission flywheel, if the teeth are bad, you don't have to
replace the whole flywheel. The ring gear can be replaced by itself for a
lot less money. Here's how to do it.
A common problem with the replacement flywheel's on LLV's has been the ring
gear welded off center to the plate. If this happens the starter teeth
will most likely grind with the new flywheel. If you don't want to
replace the flywheel a second time, check it before you install it.
