    Thanks. 30 years ago I worked part time at a wrecking yard and took these off a nail head with a hole the size of a softball in the side.

    ted on the two marine 401 engines that I got they have what looks like stick flywheels. do you have a picture of one of them. since they ran off the front of the engine that is how they run the starters. if they are not a stick fly wheel they would still be great for test stand to start engines. thank for any info you can give.

    Here is one. It has a register ring; looks like it may have been on an earlier engine.

    Ted,

    I don't think full size cars were available stick for 1966 full size cars. Now Skylark/GS were available in 1966.

    3 on the tree was standard Tom. I parted a `66 Wildcat with the standard setup. There was NOTHING left of value except the stick shift parts!

    Hi Ted,
    First time I have ever seen a register ring in a stick flywheel? Was this a `63 flywheel adapted to a later crank?

    Tom M, I assume- it was part of a parts deal. Full 4-speed setup - mostly 65 parts.
    Tom T- 66 Wildcats were standard with 3 on the tree- we saw one in Brookfield BCA and one was parked in my garage prior to getting shipped to Germany.
