Anyone put a 153 tooth flywheel in their chevy v8 conversion? I have a v8 for my cruiser but its a 87 motor one piece rear main seal with a 153 tooth flywheel. I kinda want to use the flywheel cause its light weight and Im building a cruiser for speed.:flipoff2:

well downey offroad says that you need to use their own special clutch for the conversion and a 168 tooth flywheel theres my problem more clearly.

I don't know for sure, but they may be referring to the short throw pressure plate. The short throw is because the stock clutch slave cylinder doesn't provide a lot of throw. I ended up with a Centerforce piece an it worked well.

The heavier flywheel may help in crawling, I don't know if you would notice any seat of the pants from lightweight flywheel.

Good luck.

I've used the 153 tooth flywheel in mini-truck V8 swaps. You have to use it with the AA bellhaous adapter to the stock trany.

That's the only reason to use this flywheel in any Toyota/V8 swap.
