    I ordered a spec billet steel flywheel, part number sf83s.
    After waiting nearly a month for it to show up, I open it up and find that it does not have a replaceable insert like the parts description stated ?

    Anyone ever use one of these ?
    Is it only the aluminum one that is replace able ?

    Also, does the flywheel for a 6 bolt V8 4.6 work ? Part number sf64s.
    I have heard that it will bolt up but can't confirm.

    I have an spec aluminum flywheel in my 96 Mustang, and it has the replaceable insert. Probably want to contact Spec to verify what you received is correct. Not sure in the interchangeable fitment.

    Just checked rockauto, and the GT uses a different flywheel than the v6.

    Yeah, although my thinking is that that is because the v6 flywheel has the weight depending on year.

    I conctacted spec, they told me they did away with the friction disc on the steel because people didn't want to spend $79 on a disc vs cheaper to resurface it.
    Said the aluminum one still comes with a friction disc.
    Talking to LMR still as far as what to do from here, if they will let me return it or not.

    Billet steel flywheels wear very well. Especially if the clutch puts an organic friction compound against the flywheel.

    Lmr ended up giving me a gift card since the description on the website was incorrect. It was either that or send it back.
