Curious?, they appear to be new unmachined castings ? a little difficult to tell by just the pictures though .......

I travel along a highway in Northern Victoria that has a curved spoked flywheel in its yard, easily visible from the road. How desperate are you to get one? as I can probably take a photo and ask about it next time I go past.? It appears to be still attached to a crankshaft.

I called in to the property today and spoke to the owner. The flywheel belongs to a mostly complete engine and isn't available, sorry.

There's one at a clearing sale in Lexton on Sunday, although the hub seems a bit light.

That's a pulley, not a flywheel.

OK, I've figured out the difference between a pulley and a flywheel; this HAS to be a flywheel in an upcoming auction in Wedderburn, photo 66.

And, based on the beer can as a scale, it's roughly 4' high.
