The counter-weight was a piece of 3/8" rod about an inch long tacked to
the pressure plate.
I thought anything THAT out of balance must be missing a piece somewhere.
Nothing I could find, just poor
remanufacturing\manufacture-in-the-first-place I guess.
You would think (incorrectly) that a balance job would be part of the
rebuild process. It probably is for some if not most rebuilders. Maybe
mine is an exception.
I would suggest anyone refitting a pressure plate to their car to take the
time to remove the flywheel and have them balanced together.
