Ummmm, I think from memory about 15 lbs, no more. This is removed from the rear but get a good workshop to do this, also get it balanced afterwards as this alters the balancing and I had a chev flywheel lightened recently and paid an extra $20 to have the pressure plate balanced and dowelled with the flywheel, this makes sure the whole lot fits back together exactly as balanced and should work very smooth and have maxium clutch life. But be carefull as nearly all flywheels are only cast iron and this stuff doesnt have a good strong grain structure so dont take to much of as it can get into exploding flywheel zone......even 5 lbs is noticabile. Also expect a slightly rougher idle, but much better throttle response......but things can get a bit jerky when backing off, but thats the fun of it all.....Cheers, Pete
