To machine or not to machine


Recommended Posts

Hey all. I am in the process of doing the (fun) Timing belt change on my 01 Elise. I have the pulley off. There is an unused belt bell which I assume is for the MG power steering. Is it OK to machine this off? I want to turn it off for two reasons. 1. I can then get my tension wrench in because it will give me more room and 2. it will reduce weight. Or is it all finely balanced and need it like a flywheel or something>? Thanks guys,.
