I got a price quote for:

disc plate $208.61
pressure plate $216.77
pilot bearing $36.29
throw out bearing $160

total $621.67

Here is the kicker!! Flywheel $1159.00
(this is without labor...D4mn...my CRX was only $250)

It seems a little steep, but I wanted to get your opinions.

Thanks

resurface the flywheel & aftermarket clutches might be cheaper.
Resurfacing the flywheel is not an option in the 6speeds, per the experts.

I re-surfaced my 5-speed flywheel, seems ok...but it looks like next time I'm going to have to shell $1k to get a new one. Anyone know of any alternative flywheels, aftermarket, etc?

Thanks.

I have an inkling that doing that for a 6speed is not an option.

If that's really true then that just plainly sux! I mean it's bad enough that clutch set cost more than $500 and on top of that $1000 for flywheel excluding labor?? dang imagine doing that every 2-3 years especially if you're racer.

Looks like I gotta wait longer than expected to get my clutch done.

The HELM does provide service limit specs re flywheel runout which IMO indicates that the flywheel could be resurfaced. There is no mention in the HELM of the flywheel automatically having to be replaced when the clutch is disassembled. Whether or not to replace is usually based on degree of scoring of the surface.

LPB, greetings - you are right about the HELM containing run out specs - however, according to my knowledge - those specs are designed to indicate replacement not resurface. I'm not too sure if you have seen a dual mass sprung flywheel but... you would understand why shops have tried to resurface and have either failed, had to do it by hand X many many many many hours (and I mean it would take a **** good shop that would even touch a project like that), or claimed they did and didn't do it right.

I talked with several shops, Clutchmasters, and Acura and they will NOT resurface a 6 speed flywheel.

To all those out there - LPB is right - you do not need to change the flywheel out (automatically) with a clutch job. Unless there is tooth damage, scoring, constant chirp NOT related to the throwout bearing or flyweel bearing (which would indicate warpage) - your flywheel is fine.

Don't worry for the 5-speed it's more in the $350-$400 range.

You hit it right. Dual mass flywheels cannot be reworked to spec. Once it's out of spec you replace it.

Well, well, I learned something new today. I haven't played with a clutch since 1970 and my 69 Z-28. I knew there was a reason I gave up strength training of my LT leg.
