check your flywheel :(((((

here is what my freind john the owner of Powerhouse in the us wrote to me yesterday...

Hello Thomas,
I have a small problem holding me up, when I sent your engine parts to the balancer, I did not have a flywheel at the time, so he balanced all the rest of your rotating parts so I can do the assembly, I went to put the engine on the start up stand yesterday and found that I never balanced the clutch and flywheel yet, so I went this morning over to the my balancer, and we tried to balance your flywheel, I have been having issues with the flywheels being out of balance with a major wobble in them, we have been trying different suppliers all year long and doing extra work on the dowel pin area to get them to sit flat, it seems as though the last 2 flywheels I have tried to use on your engine have been way out of balance, check out the video of the flywheel wobble I have attached. I will pick up a couple more flywheels from scat on Monday and get this fixed.
The odd thing about this problem is that I have not heard of anyone else having this problem, maybe it is they just never even balance there engines, I get about 3 out of 10 flywheels that I cannot use, anyway, I will get this worked out, let me know if you can see the wobble on the balancer, because I will be sending these video clips to Empi, Scat, and other misc. vendors I get these flywheels from.
The crankshaft in the video is just the one we use to balance all of our flywheels, we balance each crank by itself to zero, and each clutch and flywheel to a zero crank, so that if you ever need to change a clutch plate, you can pull of your flywheel and send it to balance with your new clutch.
Sorry for the delay, but as you can see, if it is not right, I won't use it.
Have a good weekend..................................................................................................................................................................
