Has anyone heard of a flywheel becoming unbalanced.
Not a flywheel, But I've seen the balance weights come off on a flexplate. (you know, a chevy thing)

At what engine speed do you feel the vibration?

I would be more inclined to think something out of balance with your rotating assembly would be something with the clutch.

A flywheel is just a chunk of metal and unless pieces are breaking off of it, there really would be know way for it to become out of balance.

theres a vibration at the higher rpm range (3000+) which isnt transmitted through the engine mounts but im thinking it might be vibration transmitted through the trans. mount ( it feels like a piece of crap) I get a rattle around 4000rpm when the clutch is disengaged like as if something in the clutch assembly is rattling around. The clutch doesnt slip so I have no excuse to rip it apart right now. I'll bet the last owner stuck some of his kids toys in the bellhousing or something, its just not right.

Has it been like that since you got it?

I never heard of a flywheel become "unbalanced" but it could be slightly bent.

Just a thought.

Or maybe the mechanic that installed it was a little unbalanced.

Another thought.......I don't know the history of your truck but I ran into this in an S10 Blazer. Some of you may have read one of my rantings on this. The so called mechanics that installed the rebuilt motor in this Blazer only installed three bolts in the bellhousing and even two of those were loose with one ready to fall right out. The truck vibrated a little when he 1st got it back but got worse and worse until it was vibrating like a futher mucker. We thought it was in the tranny, like some flywheel bolts loose or something, so we began preparations to drop the tranny. About ten minutes in I noticed the 1st missing bolt which is like a beer, you never have just one.

Once we replaced them it was fine.

isnt it stupid how dumbidiots think that when you "drop your transmission" that it actually falls out of the car. I would throw my butt off a cliff with a string cheese bungee cord before I believed that .:wiggle:
