Replacing the flywheel?
I have an engine from a 166 that I was supplied to fit into my 156, but have discovered that the engine has a dual mass flywheel on it, whereas the previous one didn't. As a result my clutch won't fit, is it possible to just swap the 2 flywheels over?
Having searched the forums it seems there are a 50/50 split of people who say that the crank and flywheel are balanced together and those that say they will be done individually. I found a tuning company that sells lightened flywheels for the v6, so it can't be too detrimental to fit one surely? Also eper allows you to buy a flywheel for the v6 seperatly to the crank, which would suggest to me that it has been balanced individually (unless the dealer rebalances the whole thing if they have to change the flywheel, which appears to occur on 3.0l v6s with dmfw).
Also the alfa workshop manual tells me that the crank in the v6 has been precision balanced with 9 weights, but mentions nothing of the flywheel balancing. Surely it would say if they had been balanced as a complete unit?
