I put new ring gears on flywheels twice, but on newer Fords. All I did was to have the flywheel in contact with the concrete floor in a fairly cold time of the year, then I set the ring gear on a concrete block and heated it with my O/A torch, slowly, keeping the flame moving. When I got the ring to where it was just under red hot all around, I set the flywheel up on a block and placed the ring on it and it took just a little tapping to bring it into place. I would be leery of the kitchen method, because you either have to carry both out doors very quickly, which is not real safe with something 500 degrees, or put them together in the kitchen which is probably even more dangerous.

Sounds reasonable. How good is your color differentiation? Anything primarily red in color is approaching 1000F.

I guess pretty good. Looks like I had it right on the nose at 500 degrees.

Your funny. Easy as pie to do one in the kitchen. Simple pan that is larger then the flywheel on the stove top. Done a good many that way. But then your older then I am so you know it all
