Had been facing starting issues when using the starter motor, so have taken off the engine for inspection.

upon inspection it was found that the flywheel teeth are badly damaged due to years of use/abuse , so now I am looking for a replacement and in the meanwhile will get this one repaired to get the car back on road.

the entire flywheel is one piece, I thought earlier that would be able to remove the flywheel ring and replace, but that doesn't seems like a easy solution.

After discussions on the Pre war minor forum, I decided to get the flywheel repaired locally, by using a hard weld and grinding.

Hope it works

The engine is back in the car and took her out for a small drive yesterday

HARD WELD is ok but I think you should have chosen to get it MILLED rather than grinding. Uneven grinding will result in more damage, once the FW is put to use.

EDIT: Oops. I realized, I am too late for suggestion

Regards.

The finish was very even , I think they used very fine grinding or maybe milling tools.
