It's the heater intake and they can't go anywhere.Personally I wouldn’t be putting tools in the air intake chute!
And that engine block looks incredibly rusty!
I've done loads of solid flywheel conversions in the past, mainly on VW's and I've never had an issue.Can I ask why you are going for a solid flywheel?
I was looking at changing to one on an SMax and the universal answer on the Ford forums was leave well alone and just see the DMF as a disposable part and suck it up.
They reported really rough running and crankshaft bearings going pop on a regular basis.
Be interested to see what you find with it.
I hope it does work out for you Bobby.Well, it's too late now as I've already bought the solid flywheel replacement, but, there have been a few on here done in the past without issue, and I've done them myself on various motor so I'll take my chance and it'll either work or not
When the DMF on our Iveco Daily 3.0ltr failed in September 2021, before he ordered the OEM spec parts, I did enquire with my HGV mechanic pal about a solid flywheel conversion.
His advice to me was to not even consider it, as we'd really only be wanting to do this job the once, rather than coming back to it at a leter date...........possibly sooner rather than later.
He is well experienced with Iveco Daily fleet vans, as well as Scania, Renault, and Mercedes trucks.
We did a complete heavy duty "clutch kit" change as well, so job's a good'un for years to come.
