I have a computer for a automatic now, as that's what came in the Jeep, and it runs like crap. Doesn't idle well, stalls frequently, running pig rich, etc. Plus, if I have a CEL on, then it's a...

As soon as I hear "good machinist", I think "more expensive than a new flywheel", lol. I'm not against buying new, I just figured if I could save a few bucks, why not? Just seems silly to buy used,...

5.9 flywheel balance....sooo confused!

OK, maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit :P

I'm putting a 5 speed manual behind the 5.2 Magnum in my Grand Cherokee to replace the fried automatic. Sourcing a 5.2 flywheel has been a bit hard in the...
