Need an AMC 360 flywheel

Postby CosmicRhino » Thu Sep 14, 2017 8:58 am

Can't find a quality supplier online for a new one. BJ's supplier had them on backorder for 7 months now with no ETA, may be discontinued.

Looking for an AMC 360 flywheel to convert my '79 Cherokee to a manual transmission.

Summit has them. They are Omix-Ada, but wear just about as well as the OEM flywheels.

They aren't so bad, huh? That was the one place I found, BJ's told me to avoid using that flywheel if I could. You have experience with them being just as good as OEM Tats?

I've only found one other place online that purports itself to sell an AMC 360 v8 flywheel, but they want $437.99 for it. Seems a bit steep for just a flywheel. http://www.jegs.com/p/Hays/Hays-Perform ... tId=746211

The only other option I know of are these: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/awr- ... can-motors

But as Tat's said, the omix are at least as good (or bad) as the OE.

I do. Not the best machining and the starter gears can be a bit soft but definitely usable for the price. I would source a good used one and have it flycut before going with the Omix however. In my opinion, the only way to get a better than OEM flywheel would be to go with a Hays, McLeod or other high dollar unit.

Thanks a lot for your input, I really value it.

Yep, hoping to find a decent used example to resurface, figured that would be better than Omix - but nice to know it's not the end of the world if I need to resort to that.
