Aldo: How many miles on your Convert when the flywheel failed? What is your best guess on the speed (or RPM) when the failure occurred?
Mine has just over 17300 miles...I bought it with just over 17000 last month.
I'm by no means an expert on the convert, but I've been researching them as I'm considering buying one. Seems that some of them came with a pressed steel flywheel. they are known to fail in the exact manner you're describing, and the recommendation is to swap out to a cast-iron one. From what I understand, they are hard to come by but not unobtainable.Not for nothing, but taking a 40-year museum piece and beating on it might not be the best course of action. Beautiful Bike by the way.
Happened to me last week, this is probably what it will look like once you open it up. I have a spare stamped one in good shape that I am going to have reinforced on both sides by a good welder. My torque converter has a little nub at the end; seems as though a small tip of that nub broke off in the end of the crank. Don't think its a big issue and it doesn't look like there is any other damage, so I plan to button it back up once I get my flywheel done up....
