As long as you are building ones that will accept an S-10 Clutch I would be interested on one for my 2.2 project.

$325 is a very, very good price for a custom aluminum flywheel with a steel friction insert and a new ring gear.

Duane (MantAscona) had the first one of these custom made as a one-off years ago, and it cost him about $550.

The first group buy we did was rather large, and yet they cost $409 each plus shipping.

I wouldn't pass on these at that price!

Hmmm, now if I could just find 32,500 pennies under my car seat....

Do they actually make the ring gear as well? Yes $325 is a very nice price for this amount of material and machine work.

The E mail I got from thel last week said the price will be $325.00 each Plus shipping. So I will sell them to this sight for the same plus all shipping and insurance cost. I am gong to give them a call Monday.
that's a very good price!
I'm OK for one flywheel.
should I get in touch with them to arrange shipping to my location (I'm in Europe)?
thanks,
Hiro

I'm only assuming they are supplying ring gears again. They did previously, not sure what the source is, but apparently they found a common ring gear that fits an Opel.

I will also take one, if it will accept an Opel Clutch. Let me know were to send the money.

AFAIK, they only have dimensions for a 9.125" Chevy S-10 clutch fitment. I had sent them a stock flywheel for reference a few years ago, and a billet steel flywheel I had custom made to fit the S-10 clutch, and they copied the design (somewhat) but in aluminum.

I had quotes for one to be made up over the winter....from a couple of different sources. Much more expensive then the price talked about here.
Let us know all the info, time frame, where to send the money, s-10 or opel clutch......., I might be in for one or two.

Ok here is the scoop. I have 6 of them on the way. I talked to Shawn at Unorthodox. It seams they have a empty machine tomorrow. I was told if I ordered them today they will be made tomorrow. It is the same flywheel rallybob had them make. They do have new ring gears and are set up for the S-10 clutch. The cost is 325.00 each plus shipping. I am guessing the shipping from them to my house will be $10.00 or $12.00 each. If you want one send me a PM. I will keep one and sell the other 5

Jeff I got your PM you are first on the list. That leaves 4 more looking for a home.

If six is the minumum, why not make more units in the run? I was second to respond on the post for the first six, but work kept me from my computer today. Is there room in the run for more? I'd hate to mss out on such a nice deal.
