Default Replacing engine- reuse clutchshoes/flywheel?

I have a sportwerks .26 nitro engine that I plan on replacing. Can I use the old flywheel and clutch shoes? I want to replace the clutch bell as there is some wear. What else will I need? The clutch shoes are pretty new... Do clutchbells and flywheels fit on different engine manufacturers?

Without seeing the shoes it's hard to say if you should replace them. The flywheel should be just fine so long as the pins are not pulling out of the back of the flywheel. Yes your flywheel will fit on other big block engines, the crank size where the flywheel mounts is standardized.

if it's the same clutch/flywheel that came with the car and it's going in the same car then yes. You absolutley can use the same clutch and flywheel.

The only thing that might change is the shimming.
