SOURCE: Flywheel area, possibly transmission

the noise might be from a loose bendix on the starter,
the bendix is a little gear in fron of the starter see if there is any visual point to see it nad make sure it keeps away from the flywheel if not have the starter repalced, this bendix have a spring to keep it away from the flywheel also with a flash ligh try to see the closes you can to the center of flywheel sometimes they get crack where they atached to the engine,
and on the shifting might be a bad transmission or the shifter has to be inspected for your mechanic

SOURCE: 1984 s10 2.8 manual trans. flywheel causes engine to vibrate

no should be same engine. check your engine mounts and tranny mount. how bad a vibration? sometimes after installing engine the trans gets shifted around and if mount was worn it will allow it to hit crossmeber and vibrate.

SOURCE: How hard is it to change the flywheel on a 1995 Lumina 3.1 engine

You have to drop the transmission to change the fly wheel, if you are going to change the fly wheel. Take it to a transmission shop since there more experianced to removing and installing transmissions.
 But before you go all through that problem, check the starter teeth. The fly wheel is a harder metal then the starter teeth and most of the time it's going to be your starter teeth that has the problem.
There are place that rebuilt starters which would save you some money, just look in your local yellow pages or internet. 
Good luck and hope this helps.

When I try to start my 1986 GMC Classic Sierra 1500 the starter sometimes grinds against the teeth of the motor , I had to change last starter because its top shield was shattering. Could someone help me?

Yes your problem because you have changed the starter then you have 6 bad 1/2 worn teeth on the FLYwheel and the only way to fix your problem is to either remove the engine OR gear box and remove the flywheel and have a new starter ring fitted to flywheel and refit what was removed and away you go finished ...
THEother way to start every time till you do it is to HAND brake off put in 1st gear and turn engine over 1/2 a turn ,and then it will start every time, as the engine will stop the same place every time so thats were the 6 worn teeth are. Have a goodday

Am installing a starter motor. I have to remove

I wouldn't replace this bushing unless it's obviously worn out. I know of this recommended method when a puller is not available, pack the bearing bore with grease and use a socket and extension or similar rod that fits snug as possible in the bearing bore and hit this tool with a hammer as to use a hydraulic effect. the pressure of the grease will push the bearing out. This method is used on, rear wheel driven, flywheel bushing removal. Good luck!

The starter is found under front end.. Near where the moter meets the trani - you will see the flywheel (a big round gear) the starter connects to the flywheel to turn the motor..

Disconnect the battery..
Disconnect wires from starter..
Should be 2 bolts that hold the starter in - remove them..

The starter goes in only one way so you cant mess it up..

Rate well ;o)

Hope this helps. Best of luck to you!

Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the transaxle.
  4. Gradually loosen the clutch pressure plate bolts, in a crisscross pattern. Support the pressure plate and remove the bolts. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Inspect the pilot bearing. If it is worn or damaged and does not turn easily by hand, remove it using a puller/slide hammer.
  6. Check the flywheel surface for scoring, cracks or burning and machine or replace, as necessary.
  7. Install a flywheel holder to keep the flywheel from turning. Loosen the flywheel bolts evenly and gradually in a crisscross pattern. Remove the flywheel.
  8. Inspect the clutch release bearing for wear. Replace it if it sticks or does not turn easily.
  9. Inspect the release fork for wear or damage and replace as necessary.

  1. Lubricate the release fork fingers and pivot with molybdenum grease and install in the release fork boot.
  2. Install the clutch release bearing on the release fork.
  3. Install a new pilot bearing in the flywheel, if removed.
  4. Be sure the flywheel mounting surface and the crankshaft or eccentric shaft mounting surfaces are clean. Remove any old sealant from the flywheel bolt hole threads and the flywheel bolts.
  5. Install the flywheel.
  6. Apply sealant to the flywheel bolt threads and install them hand-tight. Install the flywheel holding tool. Tighten the bolts, in a crisscross pattern, to 71–76 ft. lbs. (96–103 Nm).
  7. Apply a small amount of molybdenum grease to the clutch disc splines and install the clutch disc on the flywheel, spring side toward the transaxle. Install a suitable alignment tool in the pilot bearing to position the clutch disc.
  8. Install the clutch pressure plate, aligning the dowel holes with the flywheel dowels.
  9. Install the pressure plate bolts and gradually tighten, in a crisscross pattern to 20 ft. lbs. (26 Nm). Remove the alignment tool.
  10. Install the transaxle.

Hello Friend, I have a Dodge Caravan 1997 and in the process of changing out my water pump and timing belt. I am in the stage where I need to open the damper harmonic bolt. Which direction does this bolt...

I have managed to open the harmonic damper bolt. This bolt opens in the counter clockwise rotation. A breaker bar was used with the flywheel locked in place. In order to get to the flywheel, the starter motor was removed to get access. The manual suggest removing the bell housing plate. This takes more effort and one of side engine mount also need removal. I decided to remove the starter motor instead. In order to remove the starter motor, first remove the cables from the starter motor and three mounting bolts. Secure a rod or a screw driver between the flywheel and bell housing through a hole in the flywheel. The size of the size is about 1/2". This hole was visible when the engine is set to TDC (top dead center). There could be more than one hole but I did not try to rotate the engine to find out. Once the rod or the screw driver in place in the flywheel, use the 22mm socket head and breaker bar and undo the harmonic damper bolt counter clockwise (CCW). I believe an impact air gun could do this job as well. The spec on the bolt is 100 ft lbs torque - Hendry

Power antenna

Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Note the way the motor is oriented as installation is the exact order of removal. The motor is held in place on its mounting bracket by two screws. Use either a socket wrench with an extension or a screwdriver with a ratchet to remove the bolts. Note that one of the bolts has a ground/power wire for the antenna.

2. With these two bolts loosened, you will be able to pull the antenna down toward you enough to loosen the antenna gain and positive power wires located at the top of the unit. With all these wires removed, the entire assembly can be pulled down for access while leaving the wire that lead inside the motor housing intact.
3. With the unit now in your hand, roll up the black rubber sleeve that protects the unit from moisture, dirt, etc. There are approximately four Phillips head screws that hold the cover on the motor housing. Remove these screws. Also, remove the center nut that holds the antenna flywheel in place. With the cover off, you will see the flywheel and the main gear that raises and lowers the nylon antenna ribbon. You will also more than likely find bits or long sections of your OLD ribbon. Remove them.
4. Now is the time to lubricate the main gear and flywheel with either Vaseline or white lithium grease to ensure years of trouble-free operation with your new ribbon.
5. Replace the flywheel (noting its direction) and screw the cover back into place. Re-install the antenna, connect all the wiring and hook your battery back up. Turn on the ignition and radio and listen to see if the motor runs. If it does, you are ready to install your new mast.
Just follow the directions that came with it and you should be in great shape.
