how is your flywheel?

Do you know what a flywheel is?

Do you know how important it is to your automobile?

My first car was a 1969 Pontiac Gran Prix LT. Silver with a black top, and black interior, 400, 4 barrel, dual exhaust. It was in bad need of a paint job, but the interior was in excellent shape, and there was minimal rust (this was in MI, and that is rare!).

The owner wanted $850.00 for it, but was willing to come down on the price because he thought the flywheel needed to be replaced. My friend knew better and thought we could just tighten it up, not replace it. I ended up paying $700.00 for the car. I tightened the flywheel pretty easily and never had another mechanical problem with the car.

Anyways, I found out that the flywheel is pretty important to running your car.

Have you ever thought about your flywheel? Is it possible that your flywheel needs an adjustment or replacing?

Check out this movie where one guy finds out what kind of shape his 'flywheel' is in . . . .
