I had the same problem years ago...the solution = don't go back to a standard flexplate.

2 weeks ago i had my flywheel throw its teeth off and they broke the cone of the starter and sent all that into the radiator and thru the master blaster prop. then all of that junk went thru the Flowmaster mufflers, side of the boat and shreaded the cage. What an $80.00 flywheel can destroy!!!

I heard about this flywheel losing its teeth…once a year visit to the Dentist would have prevented that…
