:!emergency!: i need a new flywheel

I need a new flywheel, but I don't know if I need one with trigger teeth, or one without. If its any help, its an 87, 4.2, 5 speed, laredo. I can also send a pic through text or email if it'll help. Please I need help asap.

Can you pull the starter and see from there? 20 minute job on and off.

You should be able to put any 4.0 or 4.2 liter flywheel on that engine. The flywheel bolt pattern and size are the same, the notches for the crank position sensor won't matter since you don't use one, so as long as the ring gear has the correct number of teeth (and I believe that they do), you should be good to go. I fitted a flywheel from a 2005 4.0 onto a 4.2 and put a YJ flywheel onto the 2005 (I converted the 2005 to OBD1 and needed to YJ style notches).

Any way you can attach pics, for some reason I can't see them. I'm doing my clutch in 2 weeks and am studying up as much as possible before I tear into it.

You can't just link to images that are in your email. They need to be put on a site like photobucket first.
