Another Flywheel question

So silly me accidentally bought a used 11" flywheel off a local group with no possible returns. My transmission is a T45 and the clutch kit I have is a 10-spline 10.5" valeo. I know it's a bigger flywheel since my pressure plate bolts/dowels did not align with the flywheel. My question is, since I'm already taking my flywheel to the machine shop to get it resurfaced, is it possible to have them re-drill and re-dowel the flywheel to match with my 10.5" pressure plate and clutch? I really don't want to buy an 11" clutch kit and sell off my existing one.

Hey bro, IMHO I wouldn't. It will have to be balanced even if everything worked out correctly. Then again it's my opinion. I'm sure someone else can chime in. Good luck man.

Anything is possible, but I'd pass on it. Is the outside diameter and number of teeth the same as your old flywheel? If not, you'll experience stater issues. 2nd the vote concerning balance too.

Underestimate me, that will be fun.

Well damn, thank you for your responses. At best I'll just resurface the flywheel and re-sell it to recoup some loss. I'll just have to use my original flywheel and just take it to the machine shop, which was what I was trying to avoid since I just wanted to bang out this job all in one go when the time comes.

Too late to return the 10.5" stuff? 11" is much better, especially if power adders are planned for later. Sometimes you can do an exchange if it is unopened, especially if the new kit costs more.

I ordered the kit online, big hassle for me to message the seller, see if they offer a return, repackage everything, ship it out, wait a week or two, buy another kit, wait another week or two for it to arrive. I'm not planning to add any power outside a tune/exhaust/CAI. Not gonna be racing anything either, just a daily driver.

Look for a flywheel from a 1996-1998 Mustang GT. This will give you a 6 bolt flywheel drilled for a 10.5" clutch.

Go to car-part.com to search for salvage yards in your area with the part.
