flywheel questions

Many of you know that i did a 5-speed swap a few months ago. My donor truck was a 91 and my driver is a 94 factory turbo. I was just told lately that the flywheel for a 94 factory turbo is balanced different than a N/A truck. It makes no sense to me but i have a vibration above 2500rpm and thought just maybe this could be the problem. Anybody know if there is a difference in flywheels?

The factory turbo engine has larger piston pins, which means the piston assembly weight is different than tha NA engine.
I believe that IDI engines are externally balanced by weighted harmonic dampeners and weighted flywheels. This means that flywheels & dampeners shouldn't be swapped between the 6.9 & 7.3, and would also mean that the factory turbo dampeners & flywheels are differently weighted than the NA 7.3s...

Will driving with this setup cause premature tranny or engine failure until i can get the right flywheel. I am really surprised this never came up with all the questions i asked during the swap.

Jamye You have to remember tha there were 3 different versions of the 7.3 in 94. As far as I know both the NA and turboed 7.3 IDIs take the same flywheel, but the 7.3 powerstroke flywheel is different, and won't work on the IDI. Is that where the confusion is coming from?

I do understand the three different motors for 94. However i am now learning the motors are balanced different for the factory turbo and the N/A so the flywheel has to be different. I know that my truck is K code but every flywheel i find says 88-94. ???????

For reference, this is the origin of my question to Jayme Duty, since I'm doing this swap soon. This is from the Ford manual supplement for the 94 turbo modifications:

Nothing I had read before said anything about different flywheels for the factory turbo. I never really thought about it until your 1st. post in this thread, but it makes sense.
Now, how much difference it makes is a good question. I've read of people interchanging 6.9 & 7.3 flywheels with no problem, & I'd have to think that the difference in piston assy. weight is greater there than the difference between the 7.3 NA vs. Turbo.
The O'Reilly links are disapointing. Based on the engine code, they claim that both flywheels fit IDI's and Strokes... You might contact Sachs directly, with their part numbers. You might get better info there.

Good luck man!

Northern, Good info, that is the first that I heard of that, but it makes sense. You learn something new every day.
I agree with Phy on the Orilley's links, if you do a search for a 96 flywheel you come up with a different number than what they say a 94 stroke takes, but they should be the same.
