hey guys I need help getting the right flywheel for my manual trans swap. The guy at the tranny shop is giving me a good deal in a flywhel he has but we aren't sure it will work. I have a d1ve block and don't kniw the year. The numbers off the flywheel are: D9te-6380-bb, E5tj-da. Will this work for me? I noticed on the flywheel there is a raised portion on the back. Does the flywheel ned to be zero balance?

If the rotating assemble is stock in your D1 block, its internal balance and that flywheel is for 1979 and newer external balance, they are not compatible . If an aftermarket external balance rotating assembly has been used to rebuild your motor than you could use that flywheel.
what if I had a machine shop zero it out? Is it just the balancing part of it that makes it not compatible of it's physical dimensions?
