Re: 8BA vs 59A Flywheels

No, the 8ba wheel won't work on a 59ab block, that's probably why the gear came off. I've tryed both wheels and the gear is in or out futher, cain't remember. Walt

Re: 8BA vs 59A Flywheels

It looks like a early wheel, 59ab style, The gear looks wide like 59ab and older. Everdently the gear has just come off. Put a new gear on. Walt
