My flywheel was resurfaced about 700 miles ago, along with the replacement of clutch disk, pilot, and throw out bearing. An oil leak developed around the oil pressure sender which I believe ran down the bell housing and contaminated the surfaces, resulting in a pretty good shudder from a dead stop. Upon removal, I noticed these hot spots. I can't believe it's warped with that few miles on it, and really don't want to take it off and resurface it again. Opinions on it's condition? Can I run some emery cloth over it, or do I even need to do that?
I also noticed that there was about 1/16" play in one of the three fingers of the McCloud pressure plate. Could this have contributed to the shudder? No matter, I plan on replacing it, since it has hot spots on it too.
