My 1946 flathead ford truck flywheel doesn't have a shin on it ,does it need one ?
Not sure what you are asking here.... shim?, shine?, what?
If you hit your shin on the flywheel, that's a problem!
Spell ck. Got me it's a shin
SHIM ,SHIM SHIM is what the question was .
LoL,,,these darn computers,,,!
Behind the mounting bolts , I see them for sale
He meant your location I think .
Are you sure the shim you're asking about isn't really a dowel pin retainer or a bolt lock with tabs that bend up along side a wrench flat of each bolt?
He may be thinking of one of these. Helps spread the load for the flywheel bolts. This one is for a BBF.
I have the wire through type bolts , but I also have a shim that slides over the dowl pins and the four bolts go through it to the crank
The man from North Vancouver is correct I believe.
I don't know anything about flatheads. Lots of flathead experts here should be able to help you out.
I know that I am where I'm sitting...
Sort of.......but the man from Salem, OR, @270ci .......... was first....
It will not look just like the pic for the BBF.
The dowel pins will be spaced in between the pattern for the bolts.
It really just acts like a washer ,,,and it retains the dowels from coming out.
Yeah,,,Oregon typed it before I realized it ,,,,LoL
