To celebrate my car selling March 27 327 1969 I zipped to Ayr and dropped off my driveshaft for a check at the shop that built it.

I should have gone with a 3 instead of the monster 3.5 when the car bottoms out it touches the tunnel in several places.

They will check for straightness and balance. (I swear a vibration started after I had 5 people in the car and hit a few woopdiedoo (bumps) and it bottomed out. (At the time I assumed only on the rubber bumpers of the rear end....)

Still learning all the time!!

I picked up my driveshaft. It was bent 0.009 so they straightened it, now its 0.001 to 0.002 and balance is good. He greased the u joints and painted it.

All for free.

They called it cosmetics. (They work on a lot of heavy equipment so this was fun, clean, fussy work.

I dropped off my original and SFI flywheel to the engine machine shop.

They will surface the new FW and check balance vs the OG.

I left the new pressure plate so they can bolt it to the FW after its balanced to make sure it isnt out of balance. (If so they will balance the pressure plate as well) I have to call to make sure I was clear that I want them balanced separately so I can replace parts as I wish without needed if to rebalance.

PS: I need to whip up a trans jack plate for my floor jack..... that Muncie is heavy.
