Ahhh.. i did not know that. Consider me educated. I didn't know thy generally came with steel surfaces.

I know of MANY applications where aluminum is used in extreme heat scenarios and many of them I can't discuss.

I have ways of makink you talk.

a flywheel is not there to even out pulses form the engine. Again a flywhee is there for 2 reasons and that it.
