Can’t find a MT flywheel. Are there other flywheels that will interchange ?October 12, 2019 at 5:42 pm #15794JimNoelParticipant
Contact D&D, good possibility they will have one. Two different flywheels-9-1/2″ or 10″. All Jetfire cars use 10″. Most other F-85’s use a 9-1/2″.

Thanks, they do have them. Trying to save some money and hoping that another GM flywheel cross referenced to the 215. Have an Olds 215 four barrel engine with 60,000 original miles that has been in my garage for thirty years. Trying to put together a whole engine transmission package while there is a possibility of salvage or used parts. D&D, I believe, manufactures their flywheels making them expensive.

If your real question is, “is there a flywheel from another engine that fits a 215?”, the answer is no. There are several variants of 215 flywheels, by the way, including the Buick inertia ring flywheels.October 13, 2019 at 9:06 am #15797
Thanks, that is my question.October 13, 2019 at 12:07 pm #15798JimNoelParticipant
There is a lot of different flywheels, all for 1961-63 F-85’s. They very in weight from ~20# to 34# depending on the application. Once you find a suitable flywheel you will then need a clutch disk and pressure plate to match, not easy to find either. Attached is a list from the parts manual and some weight/application data. D&D might seam spendy but you will get the correct parts that will work with your engine/manual transmission.

Thanks for your reply and information. I am looking at an Olds matched set but they are in rough condition and would need resurfacing if they are rebuildable. The seller is asking too much for the condition. Just waiting and watching (and learning) and hoping to get lucky. Thanks again, FredOctober 21, 2019 at 9:11 am #15812willcutParticipant
I couldn’t stomach the way overpriced D&D set.
I’m trying to track down the info on the parts I ordered from California (they are in the car now). I think the gentleman’s name is Richard Gordon from California Classic Clutch. He just had me count teeth and whatnot. Ring gear count should be 156.
It’s a newer style GM set that fit perfectly! I bet the one’s from ebay will fit too. I wouldn’t bother with used.October 25, 2019 at 10:43 am #15824
We have been out of town and I just got this message. I appreciate it very much. If you find the info, I sure would appreciate it. This is the information I was hoping for ! Trying to piece together parts for something this old is sure challenging and the parts are apparently becoming “priceless” 🙁 . Thanks again, FredOctober 25, 2019 at 10:54 am #15825
It looks like California Classic Clutch is out of business or changed names/ownership through a Google search. If you can find a phone number or other info I will surely follow up. Thanks, Fred
