  • I left the flywheel outside overnight with temps well below freezing. Even then our household oven wasn't nearly hot enough. The wife was more disappointed than I was when it didn't work. The wood stove worked. Got a good bed of coals going in there. Buried the ring gear for a few minutes and it dropped right on the ice cold flywheel.

  • I put one in my BBQ grill & just let it heat for a while. Went on w/no problem!

  • Years ago my wife used to get real sore at me for using the oven to heat ring gears. I'd set the oven on 500 degrees, lay the flywheel on the concrete porch, take the channel lock pliers and lay in on after about 20 minutes.

  • In addition to heating the ring gear in the oven, try placing the flywheel in a chest freezer for 24 hrs. Make sure the ring gear teeth are facing the right direction, all parts are clean and free of burrs and work quickly.

    My wife gets PO at me when I wash parts in the dish washer. No biggie right?
