So anyway, this weekend I replaced the fidanza flywheel with an ACT streetlight. New pilot bearing and new OEM throw out bearing.
Did you use the specified lock-tite for the pilot bearing when assembling it. They are built to loose specs due to dissimilar metals expanding at different rates.



There's a discussion about it in my journal starting at post #99

Nope! Completely unaware. I ran that flywheel for years on my coupe. Didnít think anything of it. Either way itís all worn out now! But good to know.

The blown-out Blitz was too loud and getting on my nerves. Decided to finally repair my custom axle-back.

The hangers had ripped two holes in the top. I welded in two patches and rearranged the hangers.




Added a tip for good measure.
