Just spoke to the previous owner and he says that the flywheel is the one that came with the engine from his donor Fairmont which was written off.

Just to update the topic.

The cause of the vibration was an incorrect firing order.

No probs, the previous owner also laughed, because it was him who did it.

So I towed the Sapph to work (more tools and space) and got to work over the weekend. Took 2 hrs and some nuckle skin loss with the last 2 bolts on top of the bell housing, but I prevailed and got it all out.

275mm Dyna Clutch (or what's left of it) and pressure plate

Ford 302V8 Flywheel

Also discovered that the centre joint rubber on the prop is not rubber anymore.

So my plan of action is to buy new clutch and pressure plate (any recommendations, cos I'm just going to Clutch & Brake round the corner and get LUK versions of what was there.) and have the flywheel balanced with the new clutch.

Buy new centre joint and fit it.

Buy plugs, filter, etc. and drain all fluids incl. diff and box.

Then hold thumbs that one of these was the cause of the vibration.
Hi Craig. Can you please tell me what Dyna the clutch is from as I am building the same setup with 302 V8 to 21R gearbox. What pressure plate and clutchplate are you using. Thank you
