Flywheel surface rust

Recently acquired a 87 T5 flywheel and it has some surface rust on the friction surface. Should I just run it and let it take care of itself? Or sand it/clean it somehow before installing?

I'd have it resurfaced.

Re: Flywheel surface rust

Looks to me like that flywheel is in need of surfacing anyway. Its not bad, but since you are there and putting in a new clutch (I hope) there is no sense using that as is.

Re: Flywheel surface rust

This is a budget T5 swap to get me back on the road after chucking my wacked out 700R4. I won't be racing or even really beating on it all that much. Trying not to spend ANY more money on it, I have all the parts here and if there is any way I can use them I want to.

That said, how much life is left on this clutch? It's supposed to only have a couple thousand on it. Like I said I'm just trying to get back on the road.

Re: Flywheel surface rust

looks good enough, slap it all together and get that thing on the road. clutch seems to have pretty good material on it. surface rust on the flywheel won't last when it gets used.
