Yes, this is regarding a 6 speed manual swap.
I haven't got much help from the Fiero guys, yet. I've done some searching and nobody yet has used this 6 speed with a 3800. The V8 Archie might, but he seems to be a ***** (I don't make insults. I speak the truth).
I don't totally understand motors yet. I know what the harmonic balancer is, but what exactly does it do?
I can understand the balancing of a tire...its so it won't vibrate at high speeds. I can see that a flywheel has to be balanced in about the same way. However, does it need to be balanced in a certain way to "match" the engine its mated to?
Like if I were to take a good flywheel from anything, 3900, 2.8L, Northstar, whatever, and mate it with my LN3, providing it bolts up, would it need modified in any way regarding balancing? I once read a thing about LN3s being "externally balanced" and Series 1 L67'* being "internally balanced" which is why I asked. It doesn't make sense to me, but I want to check first with people smarter than I :P
All these Fiero guys regard this Archie dude as like a God and look to him for everything
This is what I'm talking about. I can purchase the exact 2.8L flywheel which was used in his project. I've emailed him back but I think he'* out for the weekend, so the question has been burning in me. He mentions the flywheel was "balanced to match". What does this mean? I may end up using the 3900 flywheel, so I'd like to know.
I'm not an idiot with my english but I know it may be difficult to read all that
