Dude, those flywheels are cake to replace. They don't even call it a flywheel, they call it a "flex plate". Just replace it. WAY easier than trying to diagnose a freaky Caddy!

Yeah...but im scared of this thing.... its a big block 403 or something like that so its massive and the thing doesnt have much room to work with underneath and I need at least 4" of clearance to get to the Flywheel. Besides..This thing is ugly as all hell!!!!

Seriously, ramps. The flex plate has just a few bolts that holds them on. Get another one. Drop the tranny down and replace your flex plate. It isn't the end of the world.

FWIW, I had one flex plate on my old 78 Bonneville crack to hell and back. Every other time I had a "broken teeth" problem that caused the starter to not engage properly, the problem was the starter, not the flex plate. So if you have a "dead spot" of sorts, where sometimes you have to bump it to be able to start it, a starter is CHEAP and way easy to replace. You might want to try that first.

I cheked the stupid thing out and its not the flywheel...the last guy to work on this thing diddnt put the spacer between the starter and the block so the starter and flywheel are fine, but the starter is at the wrong angle. I got it fixed and she is a little happier... I now get to sleep on the bed. Thanks guys.

Wow, I'm really glad I suggested you look at the starter, because I said it completely as an afterthought. (I presumed when you said you had teeth broken off the flywheel that you **KNEW** you had that as a problem, but since I have never actually seen that happen on that style flexplate, but had experienced numerous starters that gave that symptom, I was a little suspicious.) -Now I'm really glad I mentioned it!
