    Angry Are cortenay flywheels dump or am i just unlucky ??

    right another moan here , has anyone had any probs with the cortenay lightened flywheels , think my ring gear has come off the bloomin thing which aint very good considering its only bin on the car for 3 months !!!!!!!!!!! , i know standard ones can slip a lil if your unlucky but surely you would expect an uprated one to beput on with a bit more nip . i shrink things in all day at work and if this had bin done to the rule i follow it would never budge ............ever , . im guna be soooooo annoyed if it has come off grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr



    anyone else had the same prob ???

    I would check starter first before removing the box. It might not be coming out far enough

    why not remove the starter and put a few tack welds on the ring gear. Far easier and will do the job

    If you think the fly has gone tits up after only 3 months then surely the same rule applies to the starter and that could have gone after only 1

    go for the cheapest and easiest option first - ie starter.
