Welcome to the CCF! About time you posted!

Someone here will know.... a few here rebuild flywheels commercially, as well as many racers..

I never knew the spec but it is obvious when comparing an early with a late flywheel.

It's visually obvious but when you resurface you need to know that spec!

The 62 and 63 Turbo pressure plates had spacer washers spot welded to the pressure plates at the 6 mounting bolt holes. These were .125 thick.
Interesting Eh?

Can one use the .125 spacers to allow a LM pressure plate to attach to an EM flywheel? The spring pressures are better on the LM but I have a nice aluminum EM flywheel I want to use.

Dale manufacturing gave me a go/no go gauge for that and I think .120 is about right. Don't forget the correct depth for the groove - it's .100.

The answer is yes! I did that on my blue race car with an aluminum flywheel. The magic number is 3 standard washers.
If you want to use the HD 180/140 PP be sure and cut the heavy lugs off the pressure face and rebalance the PP.

As Ken said YES. I use steel inserted early alumn flywheels in the race car with late pressure plates and .125 washers. It works great. The early style alumn flywheels are easier to find, so that's why I use them.

I will not use the steel inserted flywheels I use the Scheafer aluminum flywheels.
