Pulled the flywheel off to see what damage happened behind it. Fortueally, not a whole lot. Minor transfer from flywheel to crankshaft.

Bolts are just dirty as fuck right now, I don't see any damage to the thread surfaces at all, just full of crap.

Crank has some crap on it from the flywheel. I'm picking up some new bits for my air rotary so I can clean it up and get that crap off there.

It's the flywheel..I don't think it's saveable. I have a feeling I'll need to buy a new one.

Keep the ARPs, ditch the flywheel. make sure to only grind in a radial manor.

Ok my inner noob is coming out. WTF is a grinding in a radial manor? Is that grinding in a circular fashion instead of linear?

It won't. If I did a 3sge flywheel it'd have to be the latter version (as one was 6 bolts, the other 8) and I'd need a 3sge pressure plate.

WTF did you do to it?
Stuff on the bolts is probably grease/dirt/locktite.

Radial is coming out from the center in a straight line.
Radiating.
