I have a 53 235 standard shift with a worn out flywheel. "Friend" working on it says he can't find a replacement????? Any info appreciated.

If you have a standard equipment 53 passenger car flywheel, it is the same as 42-up 216. These are easy to find. However, first confirm that you have a 9" clutch. There was also an optional 10-3/4" clutch which uses a different flywheel. That one was scarce in cars, but common in 3/4 ton and larger trucks.

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

Mine is 9" and I can't find one. All I can find is the starter ring. Any help appreciated.

No need to delete as it will just die on its own.
