Finding a fly wheel for Herbie

Finding a fly wheel for Herbie

Today Domi had to find a “new” fly wheel for Herbie because the old one was worn out and he wasn’t able to order a new one because they stopped producing the old small ones Domi would need. Our friend Michael helped Domi with taking him to different junk yards in his Jeep in order to find a used fly wheel.

Herbie 012Obviously we had to renovate the fly wheel so we brought it to a guy at a machine shop who resurfaced it. This fly wheel might be from 1964 because we got the motor number which shows that.
