Thanks Spike, u save me from doing it twice as we all love doing it again and again. I will try and send it back, Mrs wont be happy. Will try local engineers and see if they want to skim old flywheel for me. I'm a bit concerned if I did fit new flywheel it will damage crank shaft/bearings in the long run, engine has 120 000 miles on it and not to mention vibration in idle.
Hopefully this post will help other owners to avoid this flywheel purchase from Nationwide Clutch Distributors/ Techni clutch(Ebay)
Cheers

Got a booking at Engineers and they are doing the skimming now, couldnt save one of the locating pins for the pressure plate as they had to be removed to skim the same amount way from outer rim.
I should have just taken it to engineers in the first place as I always get my disc brakes skimmed there as new disc brakes don't already have the heat cycles memory and are more likely to warp under emergency braking situation, not only that its good to recycle.lol
Will post pics later.

Just collected flywheel and good as new coz new one is no good. Found out that local engineers are closing down end of next month, what a shame.
