Taken care of. Thx @DisplacedMainah

The flywheel could be done yourself buy you will want a shop. Preferably with a hoist but its not needed. Its not a job you should get into if you arent familiar with bigger jobs like that.

How do you know the flywheel is bad??

Are you talking about my post? If so, SORRY, I am just learning, a simple "Hi, this is what you SHOULD have done" would of been appreciated. And what is a "mod". Sorry if I broke a "rule".Give a girl a break, I'm not stupid, but this site isn't easy to navigate when you first join. jeez!

@tracilea
Maniah was not mocking you
You probably posted this in the wrong section and he was asking Mr.Smoke to move the thread to the right location.

Knupsel is correct. The DIY section you posted in is for instructional "how-to" stuff. There was no mockery intended i can assure you.

A mod is someone who has been granted the power to take care of this place so-to-say. We can move, edit & delete things as needed.

If you have any other questions that you cant find answers to, feel free to ask.

Hope you get your 6 back on the road again.

I AM SO SO SORRY! Maniah PLEASE accept my sincere apology, clearly I was jumping to conclusions, I had been scanning through site, and saw some pretty rude comments people made to others, and didn't understand the rules so I thought you thought I was trying to cheat or something! LOL...you know how easy it is to read a text or post and take it as sarcasm when that wasn't the case!So, Thank you, for having my post moved.

Mr. Smoke, thanks for above...and I was wrong, they did not remove the flywheel, but the "bendix" (sp) and were told it was to late to replace it, that it prb had already torn up the flywheel.

I don't seem to have any helpful responses, is my post now in the right spot???? Also can I post to classifieds? or mention an item somewhere until I get my %) "posts"?

I need to sell it, but also a great deal for someone looking. I couldn't find this item anywhere for under about 600., got lucky and got it for 160.00, and it didn't fit, so would like to post on here before Craigslist, pass on the savings..

Unfortunately there is no way around posting in the classifieds until you hit the required 50 posts. Please note that spamming a whole bunch of threads in a short time doesnt count.
