Flywheel Thickness Spec 88YJ 4.2L??

I am looking to get my flywheel resurfaced but I cannot find what the minimum thickness needs to be on the flywheel.

Does anyone know??

Thank You!

not sure, but last time i did my clutch i threw the flywheel on a brake lathe. Took a little bit off but had a few "hot spots". I took them out with an angle grinder. I definitely was not precise by any means but in the end i don't have any vibes or harsh engagement. I'd say just take enough off to smooth er out. For reference it was the original flywheel/clutch with just over 105 grand.

You're talking apples and oranges. auto's use a flexplate, not a flywheel. Flywheels are generally twice the price of flexplates, and can be resurfaced safely a few times.

Thank you all...It is a manual and I am trying to keep cost down so I will go for the resurface option because new ones can get pricy.
